The Guardian Fund’s exclusive purpose is to ensure that financial assistance is available in perpetuity to fellow broadcasters who, through no fault of their own, are in acute personal financial need. The Fund is used exclusively to support the benevolent outreach of the Broadcasters Foundation of America.
The Corporate Angel Initiative enhances our ability to reach out to broadcasters in need without drawing from our Guardian Fund. It is important to remember that once we begin a monthly grant, particularly involving the elderly, we stay with that broadcaster throughout his or her lifetime.
Bequests & Estate Plans
The Legacy Society ensures the Foundation’s ability to help broadcasters in the future. Your bequest can be a specific amount, a specific asset, or a specific percentage of the remainder of your estate after all other obligations have been met. Please consider becoming a member of the Legacy Society.
“Many of us have friends and colleagues touched by personal tragedy, perilous financial pressures or medical ordeals. For those who have nowhere to turn, the Broadcasters Foundation is available to provide needed relief, with grants to help cover basic necessities, such as medicine and recovery treatments. Please consider how your company can make a world of difference to those in dire need. Together, we can dramatically improve the quality of life of so many of our fellow broadcasters in need.”
