    Blessed Advent, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year from StarQuest

    StarQuest (SQPN) wishes you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    This is Dom Bettinelli, CEO of SQPN, with a special message. In 2020, the StarQuest Network has continued to fulfill our mission of exploring the intersection of faith and pop culture through our many entertaining and informative programs. Our listeners have responded generously through their financial support and have helped us to reach the break-even point of our current financial obligations this year.

    As we look forward to 2021, we have plans to reach more new audiences with more of the life-changing and uplifting programming we’ve been creating for more than a decade. This is why it is very important that we hear from you this Advent and Christmas—the time when non-profits receive most of their support for the year.

    If you are already a supporter of StarQuest, we thank you and ask you to prayerfully consider increasing your support at this time.

    If you are not yet a supporter, please become one now. Every gift counts. Could you give $15, or even just $10 per month? That lets us provide more than 40 hours of professionally produced shows with compelling content every month. We have special thank-you gifts for donors at several giving levels.

    And thanks to a generous gift from a Starquest supporter, when you start a new Patreon monthly pledge at sqpn.com/give, the first three months will be matched by an equal amount from our donor, up to $6,000 total.

    If you are a business owner, or just want to provide a leadership level of support, we have a special giving level for sponsors, like in public broadcasting. For $500 per month, you or your business can sponsor one of the shows on our network. Listeners will hear a message in every episode thanking you for your sponsorship and giving your web site. We’ll also have your name and link on the SQPN web page and in the show notes of every episode during your sponsorship. Find more details at sqpn.com/sponsor

    Whatever level of support you can offer, whether large or small, please show your support for SQPN this Christmas, and remember that your gifts are tax-deductible.

    Just go to sqpn.com/give. That’s sqpn.com/give.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
