One way to help ensure that Michigan continues to have a strong pool of talented people eager to enter the broadcasting industry for years to come, and to honor or recognize someone within our industry, is by joining the MAB Foundation’s Founders Club.

All Founders Club donations are safely invested and restricted only for our annual scholarships. This means that all donations to the Founders Club will go directly into securing the future of the broadcasting industry by honoring and supporting our students and future professional broadcasters. Subsequent Founders Club donations may be added to current levels to increase your recognition.
