The Impact of Directed Gifts
Directed gifts from individuals, families, and family foundations are critical to the research, development, production, and distribution of every program, project, and initiative created at GBH for both national and local audiences.
These contributions provide GBH with immediate working capital most often used for:
- Research and development, providing producers with the resources and time necessary to explore ideas, take risks, test impact, and determine direction at the beginning stages of a project;
- The exploration of new digital technologies, allowing GBH to navigate the quickly changing media landscape and to expand its reach and impact beyond broadcast;
- Finishing funds, supporting the completion of a project—the process of getting the project on the air, on the Web, or out into the community, and maximizing audience reach and impact.
An integral piece of the funding puzzle, directed gifts help propel GBH’s efforts to contribute award-winning programs and services to the public media system. A strong GBH not only enriches Boston and New England, but it can also guide the nation toward more civil public discourse, a more profound respect for truth, more equitable access to learning, and a greater appreciation of our shared culture and history.
