Partnerships with private, corporate, and family foundations, as well as government agencies, make the work of CPBN possible.
- They support the journalism of WNPR’s award-winning News Department, which reports on issues important to our community and to many foundations – such as education, housing and homelessness, health equity, and the environment.
- With challenge grants and general operating grants, they support programming on WNPR, including national programs such as Morning Edition and All Things Considered, and WNPR-produced programs including Where We Live, The Colin McEnroe Show, The Wheelhouse, NEXT, and the Faith Middleton Food Schmooze.
- Challenge grants and general operating support grants also support programming on CPTV, including the CPTV-produced Infinity Hall Live, as well as local broadcast of special documentaries and national programs such as PBS Newshour, Nature, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Arthur.
- They support the technical infrastructure that keeps WNPR and CPTV on the air and reaching thousands of listeners and viewers each day.
- Grants also enable CPBN to grow by launching programs that fulfill its educational mission in new ways. Recent examples include the New England News Collaborative, an eight-station consortium of public media newsrooms and led by WNPR; and the Learning Lab, a 20,000 square-foot journalism and media education facility located at CPBN’s corporate headquarters and serving a broad – and growing – range of our community through educational programs and mentoring opportunities.
