The foundation provides assistance to broadcasters who have fallen on hard times financially. Last year it gave out $675,000 and has distributed millions in aid over the past 60 years.
It has provided one-time emergency grants to broadcasters affected by the Joplin tornadoes and Superstorm Sandy.
"The Broadcasters Foundation is a safety net for our most destitute colleagues, many of whom have nowhere else to turn," said Jim Thompson, president of the Broadcasters Foundation, in announcing the campaign's launch.
"With help from individuals and corporations in our industry, these hard-working broadcasters are not alone -- the Broadcasters Foundation can be there when they need us most."
Foundation membership is $150 a year. To join or make a donation, contact the foundation at email@example.com or call 212-373-8250.
