CPB bolsters ongoing pubradio station philanthropy project
CPB is pumping more funding into its ongoing pubradio Leadership for Philanthropy effort, it announced today. The project, managed by Development Exchange (DEI), has trained 20 station general managers and boards to connect more with communities and work to increase gifts. The $1.5 million infusion will help 10 stations to continue work, and 30 more to get in on the next phase. "By the end of its first year, the participants raised over $1.4 million despite challenges presented by a failing economy," CPB noted in the announcement.
