NPR Receives $14 Million

The John D. and Catherine T, MacArthur Foundation has awarded a $14 million grant to NPR. This is the largest grant received by NPR in its 32-year history and comes at a time when NPR is expanding its domestic operation with the opening of NPR West, as well as increasing its commitment to international broadcasting.
Of the $14 million grant, $4 million will be given immediately to the NPR Endowment Fund for Excellence, which was established to ensure the long-term financial stability of National Public Radio. This is the MacArthur Foundation’s second largest gift to the NPR Endowment. In 1999 the Foundation provided a $3 million challenge grant.
The remaining $10 million in general operating funds will be given over the next 10 years. It will provide essential support to NPR reporting on domestic and international issues and public affairs.
