LFP Tools & Resources - Participating Stations

Since 2008, almost 60 stations have participated in Leadership for Philanthropy (LFP), an intensive program designed to help stations build or expand their major gift efforts. The LFP program offers training and coaching for CEOs, station managers, their staffs, leadership volunteers and boards of directors. The focus: helping stations connect and engage with the communities they serve, with the goal of increasing major gifts of $10,000 or more.

Below is a list of stations that participated in the program while it was funded by CPB (Corporation for Public Broadcasting). DEI continues to offer this program to all public media stations. Information on the continuing program can be found on the DEI Leadership for Philanthropy page.

If you have any questions regarding Leadership for Philanthropy, contact or for more information.
