The Radio Television Digital News Foundation, a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization, was created to uphold the standards of ethical journalism and to promote leadership in today’s electronic newsrooms. RTDNF provides training programs, seminars, scholarship support and research in areas of critical concern to electronic news professionals and their audiences.

If you support the goals and mission of RTDNF, there’s no better way to show it than to provide a gift to the RTDNF Permanent Endowment Fund. While gifts to the original RTDNF General Fund assist the Foundation in its day-to-day activities, the Permanent Endowment Fund is designed to support longer-range initiatives. Whether through a current donation or a legacy gift from your estate, unrestricted gifts to either of these funds enable us to continue our efforts to provide professional development opportunities for both working and aspiring journalists and journalism educators.

Your gifts are 100% tax-deductible and you can be sure the funds will be used for important programs to benefit the electronic journalism community.
