Expenses: “Operating – Non-Staff” expenses include building utilities and maintenance, insurance, network, automobile, tower maintenance and local news expenses.
“Fundraising” is the cost of finding new contributors to the mission. We lose about 15% of our contributors each year, about average for a Catholic charity.
We have been devoting extra resources to this effort, in order to increase our income to accommodate the cost of operating eleven, and eventually thirteen village translator transmitters which will increase KNOM’s listenership by about 50%.
“Technical” expense is mostly electric power for our 25,000 Watt AM transmitter.
