St. Louis Beacon garners $2.6 million in donations
The nonprofit St. Louis Beacon, housed inside the city's PBS member station KETC (Current, March 30, 2009), has received $2.6 million in gifts and pledges. “These gifts don't eliminate our need to fund raise by any means," said Beacon g.m. Nicole Hollway. "We see it as an infusion of capital. These gifts give us the resources to invest in areas that tie directly to earned revenue.” The money will go toward business and technology infrastructure.
