December 20, 2018Prairie Public Broadcasting has been awarded a $50,000 grant from Newman’s Own Foundation, the independent foundation created by the late actor and philanthropist, Paul Newman.

The award was made by Newman’s Own Foundation as part of its commitment to encourage philanthropy. The grant will be used to match the financial support, dollar-for-dollar, contributed to Prairie Public by individual members.

“During our membership drives, people are often motivated to become members—or make additional gifts—when we offer a matching challenge. The Newman’s Own Foundation recognizes this incentive, and wants to encourage that kind of giving,” said Troy Davis, Prairie Public’s development director.
