Aid for Illness, Accident, Advanced Age
The Broadcasters Foundation of America provides monthly grants to broadcasters who are unable to work due to an illness, accident, advanced age or other serious misfortune. Medical bills or long-term care expenses can leave a family in desperate need of help. The Foundation provides grants to help fill in the gap between income and expenses.
Aid for Natural Disasters
When natural disasters hit a community, broadcasters are some of the first on the scene, reporting live. But these events can also affect the lives of broadcasters, leaving some in dire financial need. In these situations, the Broadcasters Foundation of America provides one-time grants to broadcasters who need financial help recovering from disaster.
“Today we received your check from Broadcasters Foundation of America Emergency Grant. My wife and I want to thank you and this program from the very bottom of our hearts for the help you provided us. This is so timely and a wonderful gift. We have a long way to go to even think about “normal” but this will definitely get us started going forward. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!”
