In response to your question: "How did The Tobin Endowment Challenge Grant do last night?" We're happy to report the successful results!
KLRN introduced The Tobin Endowment $10,000 Challenge Grant at the start of last night’s PBS NEWSHOUR, and the phones and web exploded in response! The Tobin Endowment provided a $10,000 grant — $1 for every $1 pledged in and around the PBS NEWSHOUR last night.
We received 139 pledges – from $5 to $1,000 – from callers in
The total pledged was $23,900. Counting the $10,000 Tobin Endowment Challenge, the activity was a $33,900 success!
Many thanks to all of you for your support and good wishes . . . and to the Tobin Endowment for its continued participation in our Membership Campaign.
