ideastream has always relied on a mix of private individuals, corporations, foundations and state and federal governments to support the station’s programs and services. But as the needs of our diverse community amplify and become increasingly more complex, even this generous community support will be insufficient.
Although ideastream welcomes and appeals to a broad audience to become supporting members, the station’s ability to fulfill its mission rests on a much smaller group, ideaLeaders, whose members share both a deep commitment to the community and the economic power to make a difference. ideaLeaders share the station’s conviction that powerful telecommunication tools can and should be directed to the greater good, and that ideastream must be supported in its goal of reaching out to everyone in our community - rich and poor, young and old, schooled and skilled.
ideaLeaders enable ideastream to go beyond the status quo – to expand its vision of excellence, to take risks on new programming, to develop cutting-edge interactive technologies, and to find innovative ways of the serving the community.
Membership in the ideaLeaders begins with an annual contribution of $1,000 or more. ideastream recognizes the generosity of ideaLeaders with a wide range of exclusive benefits.
If you would like to become a member of the ideaLeaders, or if you would like more information about this important group, please contact Sharon Herene at 216-916-6174.
