KPOV’s Recent Grants

KPOV SENDS OUR GRATITUDE to two great foundations for grants received this summer!

EQUITY FOUNDATION awarded KPOV a grant to produce LGBTQ youth-led radio segments.  This project will engage youth in learning how to be a DJ and how to produce a radio show, under the guidance of an experienced adult DJ mentor.  Interested youth can get involved by contacting KPOV at info@kpov.org.

We would also like to thank Human Dignity Coalition and PFLAG Central Oregon for their work to engage youth in this project.

US BANK also extended a grant to KPOV to support our mission as an independent voice serving our community with local affairs and information, a unique selection of great music, and national and global news not offered by any other station in Central Oregon.
