Support for KBOO
I was honored to attend a presentation with Oregon Community Foundation last week at which received an unrestricted grant of $25,000. With this gift, OCF will single-handedly make up our membership drive shortfall. This is part of the PGE Multnomah County Charitable Fund of The Oregon Community Foundation which was created as part of a settlement in which PGE also refunded its customers who paid the Multnomah County Business Income Tax. We are thrilled that OCF supports sister organizations like KBOO radio in support of positive change in our communities.
Also thank you to the Corporation For Public Broadcasting. We just received the final $15,000 reimbursement for our digital transmitter upgrade. Over the last two years, CPB reimbursed a total of $75,000 in expenses for our digital portion of our transmitter upgrade. If you upgrade to a digital receiver for your home or car, the station sounds better.
