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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
