End of the year is a good time to consider support for the John Bayliss Broadcast Foundation.

Like other nonprofits, the foundation — which supports college students through scholarships and internship opportunities — has faced challenging times in keeping its outreach active. Its annual roast was put on hiatus this year, and the organization explored a new fundraising approach through its first online auction, which grossed $35,000. It continues to review fundraising opportunities and work to reduce its expenses.

The organization, under Executive Director Kit Hunter Franke, thanked donors this month for helping keep its scholarship fund active.

“Since 1985, we have provided more than 340 outstanding college students with over $1.1 million in financial aid. Thank you! … The Bayliss Foundation's commitment to excellence in our industry and to the development of young talent is hard fast,” it continued. “We are determined to be positive in our outlook for the future and persistent in our endeavor to continue our mission to supply the radio industry with dedicated professionals. But, your help is still necessary.”

Tax-deductible gifts to the Bayliss Radio Scholarship Fund can be made here.
