WSKG is pleased to be the recipient of a $5,000 challenge grant from Newman’s Own Foundation. This grant helps WSKG bring you award winning educational programming and supports projects such as American Graduate and Youth Voice – programs that help local youth see the value of education and stay on track to graduation. For the month of February only, your contribution to WSKG’s youth programs will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $5,000, by the Newman’s Own Foundation. Please help us meet this challenge!
Newman’s Own Foundation has been supporting public media for 32 years — since 1983. Since that first year of giving, over $12 million has been granted to more than 50 stations in support of public media. The grant to WSKG from Newman’s Own Foundation demonstrates its commitment to independent media and the value of open dialogue.
Paul Newman gave back because “it’s just the right thing to do.” He supported hundreds of worthy causes, but you don’t need to have a million dollars or be famous to have an impact. Every single person who is inspired to make a difference can do that. What a great thought!
