‘He said to His disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few.”’ Matthew 9:37 NLT
What is Visionathon?
At first glance, many would say Visionathon is a fundraiser to keep Vision going and growing. But it is so much more than that!
Visionathon is also a huge celebration of our Vision family, who have partnered with us and shared their stories of how God has impacted their lives through Vision. And it’s a declaration of faith that God can supply our needs, just as we have seen Him do over the last three-and-a-half decades of Vision’s ministry.
It is also an invitation for you to help people look to God daily by standing for the Gospel together with Vision as we spread God’s Word through broadcast, print and digital media across Australia. Every donation will make a difference in winning souls and changing lives!
*Note: These percentages are based on 2023 calendar year forecasts, and are subject to change
Why Do We Need Donations?
Because your donation makes Vision possible!
Vision is a non-profit charity made possible by generous-hearted people with a passion to shine the light of the Gospel to every corner of Australia. Almost 90% of our operating costs are covered by donations from people like you who know the power of God’s Word and share our heart for spreading the Gospel. As the world we know is rapidly changing, now more than ever, there is an urgency to defend the faith and win souls for Jesus. We are humbled by the generosity of special people like you who have seen what God is doing through Vision and have felt prompted by the Holy Spirit to join in partnership with us. We are incredibly grateful for your support.
When you give during Visionathon, you will be helping thousands of people nationwide look to God daily
Your gift is also tax-deductible (for Australian taxpayers) – THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.
How much is needed?
This Visionathon we’re stretching our faith like never before, believing God for $2.3 million to go toward the ongoing operating cost of Vision’s 24/7 media ministry. The amount needed includes an allowance for operations nationwide, plus the first year’s operation of DAB+ radio in Sydney and Melbourne, and funding for new stations in small rural towns.
$2.3 million would be a lot for any one person, but we have seen God do amazing things in the past when we step out in faith to stand together for the Gospel. All we ask is that you pray about the part God might have you play and respond accordingly to become spiritual shareholders in God’s Kingdom. We know that God equips the called, so as we faithfully follow His lead, we can trust Him to supply our needs.
Today, as in biblical times God is looking for people who will shine the light of His truth to the world. Will you stretch your faith with us to help people across our nation look to God?
Standing Together for the Gospel!
The world has been turned upside down in the last few years. People are hurting, struggling and searching for hope. As Christians, we are uniquely positioned to be a light in the darkness. Secular media has its own agenda, where God is definitely not in the picture, and the focus is on fear and uncertainty – a continual reminder that we live in a broken world without hope.
Vision, on the other hand, focuses on encouraging people by proclaiming the Gospel, uniting believers, affirming God’s promises, challenging Christians to step forward to defend their faith, restoring broken lives, and praying for people and our nation. You’ll hear lots of stories about how God is on the move in people’s lives during Visionathon! Vision is a beacon of hope reaching people right where they are with a reminder that Jesus Christ is the only source of true hope and salvation.
Vision is available 24/7 nationwide thanks to people like you who have donated in the past and continue to do so today. That’s why your donation during Visionathon will be crucial. You and thousands of others will be joining together in an amazing display of faith and unity to raise the funds needed for Vision to keep going strong.
Your donation will be fuel in the tank so that Vision can keep going and growing through new opportunities like DAB+ digital radio in Sydney and Melbourne, keeping one of our regional stations on-air, introducing someone to The Word for Today devotional or the free Vision App.
The Vision team are working hard to bring you the best possible content, resources and services because we know by doing so, we are not only honouring God, we’re making you stronger in your faith so we can stand together for the Gospel.
So please consider how much seed you will sow during Visionathon, or if you’re ready to give now, click the donate button below.
Thank you so much!

Vision is a non-profit and non-denominational Christian charity.
Since the beginning, our founders received the word of Habakkuk 2:2 and caught a vision: to use mass communication technology to reach the four corners of Australia; to go to places where God’s Word may not always e available; and be accessible to whoever wanted it.
In walking towards this vision by our faithful pioneers, today the Vision brand has grown to be a trusted, consistent and unifying voice, encouraging and affirming people in the Christian faith, and transforming lives with God’s truths.
