Every bit helps!Mass media: a powerful tool, often misused. We’re trying to turn that around with uplifting programs that encourage listeners to reflect and to act with vision, conscience and compassion.

The fund is administered by Documentary Educational Resources (DER), founded in 1968 to foster development of educational films, primarily on societal and anthropological subjects.
