Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Foundation
Our MIssion

The Wisconsin Broadcasters Association Foundation contribution to broadcasting in Wisconsin encompasses a strategic, long term vision for enhancing, promoting and supporting the broadcast industry by encouraging the preservation of broadcast history, participating in public affairs activities in the State of Wisconsin and providing educational opportunities for professional broadcasters and those who seek future careers in the broadcast industry.

The Educational Support Grant Program was created by the WBA Foundation in 2000 to award up to $10,000 annually to assist non-profit college and technical school broadcast education programs in acquiring equipment, hardware, software and/or other teaching materials that are necessary to conduct broadcast education programs and promote careers in broadcasting. Due to the program’s excellent response, in the last 17 years, the Foundation Board has approved $172,427 in Educational Support Grants.
