The Broadcasters Foundation of America’s Emergency & Disaster Grant program provides one-time grants of $1,000 to people working in the Radio and/or Television broadcasting fields. Below is a message from Jim Thompson, President of the Broadcasters Foundation of America:
“The Broadcasters Foundation of America’s Emergency & Disaster Grant program provides one-time grants of $1,000 to broadcasters who have faced extreme financial hardship due to natural or environmental disasters, such as hurricane damage, fires or flooding.
In order to be considered for the Emergency/Disaster Grant Program, applicants must work in Radio and/or Television Broadcasting. Please include with this application a description of your current financial circumstances as they pertain to the recent wildfires in California.
Please complete the application thoroughly, listing your insurance coverage and including a cost estimate for items and property lost that is not covered by insurance. Once we received the completed application, we will then review the situation and determine if an Emergency Grant is in order.
Feel free to contact the Broadcasters Foundation with any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212-373-8250.
