Philanthropic support from foundations, corporations and individuals

American Public Media is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization. Our mission cannot be realized without the tremendous support extended to us by the more than 90 foundations and over 100,000 individuals who believe in our programming and service to our listeners.

Corporations, foundations and government agencies made philanthropic grants to support the annual programs and services that fulfill our mission. Within each category, contributors are listed in descending order of their financial support.
