By Megan Orbin—
MUNCIE, IN—Woof Boom Radio and 104.1 HD1 WLBC take our role seriously as partners to those in the cities and towns we serve. WLBC continues to assist some remarkable organizations in making a difference in our community with the WLBC Hometown Heroes Grant Program.
For consideration, the organization or cause must be one of the following:
- A 501c3 (or other designated not-for-profit organization) and can provide documentation
- An educational, government, or city agency
- In an emergency, crisis situation
- An event that is free and open to the public
Those requests that address improving issues related to health, education, and economic development will receive special consideration. We also look to support programs or initiatives that address a specific social condition and have a plan that can accomplish stated objectives.
As a locally owned business committed to using our resources judiciously to give back to the community, we ask those groups seeking our support to help us determine how best to dedicate our efforts. Each month one community organization will be the recipient of this grant.
This is not a cash grant but rather the commitment of WLBC resources – the station with a coverage area that reaches nearly one and a half million people. We can only award a select number of grants each year. Those organizations awarded a WLBC Hometown Heroes Grant will receive the most significant commitment of our resources. For the worthwhile causes that do not receive a grant, we will frequently support their efforts by providing access to our community calendar and announcements.
To apply, visit www.wlbc.com/HometownHeroes and fill out the form. The deadline to apply is February 28th, 2023.
