#GivingTuesday – Support the BFOA!

New York, NY – November 27, 2023 – In conjunction with tomorrow’s Giving Tuesday, a celebration of giving around the world, the Broadcasters Foundation of America is asking radio and television professionals to consider a tax-deductible donation that will help their colleagues in need. The Broadcasters Foundation, a 501c3 charity, provides financial assistance to people in radio or television who are in need due to a debilitating disease, accident, or disaster. Donations in any amount can be made here.

“Giving Tuesday is a perfect day to think of our colleagues who have fallen on challenging times,” said Tim McCarthy, President of the Broadcasters Foundation. “Every week we receive more requests for aid, and we cannot turn our backs on our hard-working colleagues who life has dealt a difficult hand, leaving them in need of our help.”

“Funds can be depleted quickly when fighting an illness or recovering from an accident,” noted Scott Herman, Chairman of the Broadcasters Foundation. “Natural disasters have become more severe in recent years, and our one-time emergency fund has often helped our colleagues keep a roof over their heads. To continue providing this much-needed assistance, we need everyone in radio and television to come together for our colleagues in need.”

The Broadcasters Foundation has distributed more than $15 million dollars in aid over the past 20 years.  This year, the Foundation will award approximately $1.8 million. More information about the Broadcasters Foundation, including how to make a donation or apply for aid, is available at www.broadcastersfoundation.org, 212-373-8250, or info@thebfoa.org.
