BFOA In Need of Donations Following Cancelled Fundraisers Due to Pandemic

New York, New York – May, 10, 2021 – The Broadcasters Foundation of America is in need of donations to counter the loss of funds from major fundraising events that were cancelled due to the Pandemic. A 501(c)3 charity, the Broadcasters Foundation is the only organization dedicated exclusively to providing financial aid to broadcasters and their families whose lives have been upended by debilitating illness, accident, or catastrophe.

“In its more than 70 years of existence, The Broadcasters Foundation has provided financial assistance to every broadcaster who qualified, and we want to continue that track record,” explained Scott Herman, Chairman of the Broadcasters Foundation of America. “These men and women are our colleagues, and unthinkable tragedy has left them unable to work. We cannot turn our backs on them.”

Cancelled fundraisers for the Broadcasters Foundation include the Celebrity Golf Tournament, the Golden Mike Award, and the Philip J. Lombardo Charity Golf Tournament. Personal and corporate donations can be made by visiting www.broadcastersfoundation.org/donate.
