NEW YORK PUBLIC RADIO noncommercial Classical WNYC-F and Talk WNYC-A/NEW YORK are launching their latest fundraising drive, the Campaign for NEW YORK PUBLIC RADIO, with the receipt of the station's largest single grant ever, a $6 million donation from the JEROME L. GREEN FOUNDATION. The stations aim to raise a total of $57.5 million, $45 million for the station's move to 160 Varick Street in LOWER MANHATTAN and the rest for programming.
The GREENE grant, which will result in the new facility's performance space being named the JEROME L. GREENE PERFORMANCE CENTER, brings the total raised thus far to $30.803 million, including $10.1 million from the CITY OF NEW YORK.
