SUPPORTING NEW YORK PUBLIC RADIO’S WORK

Alfred P. Sloan Foundation: Over the years, support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation has helped WNYC produce outstanding programming that advances the public’s understanding of science, technology, and economics. Radiolab, Studio 360 and The Takeaway have all benefited from the foundation’s commitment to supporting and nurturing new ideas, approaches, and public service programming. Sloan’s most recent support, for WNYC’s burgeoning health reporting unit, will help build the staff and capacity to deliver high-impact news and information about health, health policy and the delivery of healthcare in the metropolitan region.

The Charles H. Revson Foundation: In Fiscal Year 2014, the Charles H. Revson Foundation renewed its support of WNYC’s local journalism with a $750,000 grant. Illustrating Revson’s deep commitment to the welfare of all New Yorkers, this grant will support WNYC’s ability to deliver strong local news using data news and audience engagement as a way to shed light on inequality and to tell the untold stories. This grant will keep WNYC news on the leading edge and advance important work that was initiated with the support of a Revson grant of $1 million in 2010 for the digital transformation of the newsroom.
