BFA Launches Year-End Giving Campaign on Giving Tuesday

The Broadcasters Foundation of America launches its annual year-end appeal on December 3 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. BFA, a 501(c)3 charity, is the only organization dedicated to providing aid to broadcasters and their families whose lives have been upended by tragic illness, accident or catastrophe. Donations can be made by visiting www.broadcastersfoundation.org/donate.

This year's Giving Campaign comes as more broadcasters than ever before are reaching out for monthly or emergency relief. The Broadcasters Foundation will award more than $1.3 million in aid this year. Monthly grants have increased over 75% since 2015, and more than 500 emergency grants have been awarded since 2017. Over the past 19 years, BFA has distributed over $11 million to broadcasters in need.

"These funds make a huge difference in the lives of broadcasters and their families," commented Broadcasters Foundation of America Chairman Dan Mason. "Our grant recipients are hard-working broadcasters who have experienced unthinkable tragedy and desperately need and deserve our support."

"Requests for assistance have escalated at an alarming rate over the past several years," added BFA President Jim Thompson. "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."

To learn more or to donate, please contact the Broadcasters Foundation at info@thebfoa.org or visit www.broadcastersfoundation.org.
