DEAR SMILE FM LISTENERS: We’ll jump to it: This winter we ask our listeners to help us. Because we are licensed as a non-commercial radio station, we can not run paid commercial advertising. We survive on donations averaging $20-40 month from listeners (A very small percentage comes from non-profits and businesses which we thank for their donations). Only a tiny portion of our listeners give. If everyone visiting this website today gave $40 month, our fundraiser would be done within a day. That’s right, the price of a daily cup of coffee can make a huge difference. We’re a small independent non-profit with costs of a major broadcast network, electricity, tower rent, insurance, streaming servers, staff and programs. Smile FM is something special. We're a radio outreach where we build families, touch hearts and change lives. So yes, there is still a need for you to join the team and become a Smile Maker at $40 MO! If Smile FM has helped you or you believe we are making a difference, take one minute to keep us on the air and fully funded for 2017. Thank you!

Downriver Upgrade Update: In late 2012 Smile FM raised funds to increase our signal in Metro Detroit. Unfortunately we have run into additional technical and local legal challenges in order to complete the upgrade. Federal approval has been secured and funds have been raised and set aside, we are still hopeful to complete the upgrade as soon as possible. We appreciate your prayers and patience with this matter. We will let you know when we have a new target date to be on the air at a higher power.
