AID FOR ILLNESS OR ACCIDENT
Medical bills or long-term recovery expenses can leave a family in desperate need of help. Broadcasters Foundation of America provides monthly grants to broadcasters who are unable to work due to a severe illness or critical accident.
AID FOR NATURAL DISASTERS
When natural disasters hit a community, broadcasters are some of the first on the scene, despite their own needs. In these situations, the Broadcasters Foundation of America provides one-time grants to broadcasters who need financial help recovering from disaster.
Broadcasters Foundation of America has provided support to broadcasters in 40 states & territories, including Washington, DC, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
Over the past 20 years, Broadcasters Foundation of America has distributed more than $15 million to our radio and television broadcasting colleagues in need.
Who We Help
As broadcasters, we report on breaking news, entertain our neighbors, and support our communities. But what happens when one of our own needs support? Who steps in to help when a broadcaster has a medical emergency with a long road to recover or a natural disaster hits and leaves behind unexpected damage?
Whether you're on the air, behind the boards, in the office, or on the sales desk, Broadcasters Foundation of America's sole mission is to help all our radio and television broadcasting colleagues in dire need. Here are a few stories of who we support.
