If you support the goals and mission of RTDNA, there’s no better way to show it than to provide a gift to the Foundation's Permanent Endowment Fund. While the General Fund provides for the day-to-day expenses of the foundation, and allows us to offer new programs and research, the Endowment will ensure we’re still able to provide the resources and scholarships for which we’re known for years to come.

The endowed fund is designed to support longer-range initiatives of the Foundation, and to provide a secure financial future. Whether through a current donation or a legacy gift from your estate, unrestricted gifts enable us to continue our efforts to provide professional development opportunities for both working and aspiring journalists and journalism educators.

Oldfield Circle

With a contribution of $500, you gain entry as a member of the Oldfield Circle, an exclusive group of Foundation supporters helping to continue our legacy of supporting journalists. Named for Barney Oldfield, the founder of RTDNF, both the Oldfield Circle and Oldfield Society will acknowledge those donors dedicated to the foundation he created, and its mission of supporting journalism.

Join the Oldfield Circle

Oldfield Society

Entry into the Oldfield Society is ongoing and is based on making an estate contribution of at least $2,500 to the Endowment. Membership into the Society is granted with proof of the donor’s intent to make the planned gift. These gifts are an opportunity to have a portion of your legacy dedicated to the protection and advancement of journalism. These legacy gifts help support the Foundation long into the future, despite changing political or economic climates. Your contribution helps provide stability for the future of the foundation.

Join the Oldfield Society
