Collaborations with private, corporate, and family foundations, as well as government agencies, make the work of Connecticut Public possible.
- They support the journalism of Connecticut Public’s award-winning News Department, which reports on issues important to our community and to many foundations – such as education, housing and homelessness, health equity, and the environment.
- With challenge grants and general operating grants, they support programming on Connecticut Public Radio, including national programs such as Morning Edition and All Things Considered, and locally-produced programs including Audacious, Disrupted, Seasoned, Where We Live, The Colin McEnroe Show, and NEXT.
- Challenge grants and general operating support grants also support programming on CPTV, including the CPTV-produced Where ART Thou, as well as local broadcast of special documentaries and national programs such as PBS Newshour, Nature, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Arthur.
- They support the technical infrastructure that keeps Connecticut Public Radio and CPTV on the air and reaching thousands of listeners and viewers each day.
- Grants also enable Connecticut Public to grow by launching programs that fulfill its educational mission in new ways. Recent examples include the New England News Collaborative, a ten-station consortium of public media newsrooms and led by Connecticut Public Radio.
