Colleagues Helping Colleagues


The Colleagues Helping Colleagues (CHC) Fund was established in 2005 as a means for people working in public media to directly support their colleagues who suffered losses in natural disasters.

The CHC fund has collected and distributed over $80,000 to assist staff members affected by floods, fires, hurricanes, and other natural disasters nationwide. Greater Public administers the fund on behalf of the public media system at no charge, and all gifts are tax-deductible. Gifts in any amount will be welcome to our colleagues in need.

Still waiting on FEMA, our insurance company, gas prices to drop, my doctor to return my call and my cats to chill out. But, today I got my check from the Colleagues Helping Colleagues Fund.

It’s the first sign of HOPE we’ve had in two weeks. The money is a HUGE help and boost to our sprit like you can’t believe. The kindness and generosity you and your team have provided for me and mine… PRICELESS. Thank you again!
