Adams Radio Group Launches Employee Donation Drive to Support BFOA

Adams Radio Group has launched a voluntary employee donation drive to help create awareness and raise funds for the Broadcasters Foundation of America, a 501(c)(3) charity that provides aid to fellow broadcasters in acute need from life-altering illness, accident, or other disaster. The plan allows all Adams Radio Group employees the opportunity to set up automatic payroll deductions, in any amount, as donations to the Broadcasters Foundation.

“When I learned that the sole mission of the Broadcasters Foundation is to provide financial assistance to our colleagues who, through no fault of their own, are in desperate need, I knew we had to get involved,” said Ron Stone, President of Adams Media Group and President and Executive Director of the Independent Broadcasters Association. “These broadcasters are our colleagues. I would ask every radio group to consider helping the only charity that is dedicated solely to helping our colleagues.”

“We want to make sure everyone in broadcast radio and television is aware of our mission so they can reach out for help if they, or anyone they know, has been impacted by life-altering circumstances that has left them in great need of our support,” noted Tim McCarthy, Co-President of the Broadcasters Foundation.

“We’re very grateful to Ron for launching a voluntary employee donation drive to benefit the mission of the Broadcasters Foundation. With help from broadcasters like Ron, we can continue to provide aid to those in our industry who need it most,” added Jim Thompson, Co-President of the Broadcasters Foundation.

Since its inception 70 years ago, the Broadcasters Foundation has distributed millions of dollars in aid to broadcasters who have lost their livelihood through a catastrophic event, debilitating disease, or unforeseen tragedy. Personal donations can be made to the Foundation’s Guardian Fund. Corporate contributions are accepted through the Angel Initiative, and bequests can be made through the Foundation’s Legacy Society.
