Patron of the Arts
( ˈpeɪtrən əv ðɪ ɑːts )
Someone who acts as a patron to or supports organizations and individuals that work in or concern the arts.
What does it mean to support something like the Christian Music Archive? If you believe in our work, you can help us offset the cost of running the website and producing the podcast. Each year, we spend about $2,500 to maintain all that we have going on.
Yes, we have a little bit of advertising revenue representing about 30% of our annual costs. The rest is provided by people who believe in my work to document the men and women responsible for writing the soundtrack of the Christian faith.
Would you be willing to be one of those people? If you would like to facilitate the creative process by a one-time or recurring donation, your patronage would be appreciated!
My way of saying thanks
As an incentive to participate, any patron donating on a recurring level will have the opportunity to provide questions to podcast guests. I'll send you an email the week before my conversations and invite you to submit questions to be considered for the interview.
Thank you for believing in the work of the Christian Music Archive. I do this for you!
In 2022, we are moving the Christian Music Archive website to a new content management system. This move is because our current CMS is reaching the end of life. So this move is necessary to keep the site growing. This project is going to cost close to $10,000. Any help you can provide for this transition would be greatly appreciated!
Note: The Christian Music Archive is NOT a not-for-profit 501c3 organization. I'm just a guy who wants to be sure that the history of Christian music is well documented. So, while your donations are not tax-deductable, they are much appreciated!
