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.
“It’s been my good fortune to spend my entire career as a journalist chronicling broadcasting and the men and women who conjure it – owners, managers, disk jockeys, reporters, producers, technicians and engineers. A few years ago, I interviewed a couple Broadcasters Foundation grant recipients. I was moved by their stories and came to understand who deeply appreciated and critical Foundation’s support can be. But the Broadcasters Foundation of America can’t do its job without you. Please make a donation and nudge some of your broadcasting colleagues to do the same.”
