The Broadcasters Foundation of America launches its annual year-end appeal today in conjunction with Giving Tuesday, a nationwide movement of charitable giving.
The Foundation’s drive asks for tax-deductible personal donations to the Guardian Fund and corporate contributions to the Angel Initiative. The Broadcasters Foundation is a 501(c)3 charity, and the only organization dedicated exclusively to providing aid to broadcasters and their families whose lives have been upended by tragic illness, accident, or catastrophe.
“Requests for assistance have escalated at an alarming rate over the past several years,” said Jim Thompson, President of the Broadcasters Foundation. “At this giving time of year, we ask every broadcaster to give thanks for their success and good fortune with a tax-deductible contribution that will help us continue our mission of providing aid to those in our business who need it most.”
