Foundations & Grants

Foundations and Grants

Our Mission

Grants and charitable gifts from private, family and corporate foundations are accepted by the Friends of Idaho Public Television, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. While general operating and unrestricted gifts are always appreciated, many of IdahoPTV’s mission-based projects, programs and initiatives align with many foundation goals such as: early childhood education; literacy; community and family engagement; history, arts and culture; STEAM; workforce development; Idaho history; conservation; statewide, regional and local impact; underserved communities; classroom and educator enrichment; and local production support.

The Friends of Idaho Public Television is recognized by independent watchdog organizations Candid (formerly GuideStar) and Charity Navigator for consistently meeting the highest professional standards of operational excellence, efficiency, transparency and accountability. Funders can be confident that their investment through a foundation grant will be used for the good work and purposes intended.

What's IdahoPTV's Mission? We Tell Idaho's Stories.

Public Recognition for Supporting IdahoPTV

You're in Good Company

Significant private contributions are critically needed to support IdahoPTV’s local production efforts that Tell Idaho’s Stories. Annual gifts of $5,000 or more and multi-year gift pledges can receive on-air and online acknowledgement messages within or around locally produced series such as Outdoor Idaho, Idaho Experience, Science Trek, and Idaho Reports. Share your organization’s message of support and community impact with a charitable investment in the mission of Idaho Public Television. 

The Friends of Idaho Public Television gratefully acknowledges these private and corporation foundations for their commitment to the mission of IdahoPTV through charitable contributions.
