Foundation Project



Foundation grants play a secondary role in the financing of all but a handful of public radio stations. In the aggregate, however, the amounts are substantial. SRG members now generate some $3.5 million in foundation grants, about four percent of their nongovernment support.

Foundation support will continue to provide only a modest percentage of public radio's overall cash flow. But there is opportunity for significant growth. Over the next three years, a sustained effort could generate as much as $1.5 million in new philanthropic support for SRG members.

The Foundation Project is an effort to understand more clearly station experiences with foundation grants and to create and implement strategies that will bring more foundation funding to SRG membersí public service programming and other activities.
