The BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION OF AMERICA has launched its 2015 Holiday Giving Campaign in support of its Annual Year-End Appeal for donations to the Guardian Fund, helping broadcasters in need of assistance. Donations, as well as corporate contribution for the Angel Initiative and bequests through the Legacy Society, can be made via broadcastersfoundation.org and (212) 373-8250.
“The BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION makes it possible for ill or elderly broadcasters to continue their life-sustaining medications or for their families to remain in their homes,” said Chairman PHIL LOMBARDO. “Many of us in broadcasting have much to be grateful for, and I urge every broadcaster to take an accounting of their blessings and consider helping our colleagues through a charitable donation to the BROADCASTERS FOUNDATION.”
“Requests for aid continue to pour in every day,” said Pres. JIM THOMPSON. “Our goal is to help as many of these broadcasters as possible. We hope that this giving time of year will inspire donations to help our colleagues. Individual contributions to the Guardian Fund have ranged from $50 to $50,000, and every amount helps our mission.”
