The Bluegrass Country Foundation has established this endowment to further the work envisioned by Dick Spottswood and Gary Henderson when they launched the Bluegrass Unlimited radio program in 1967 to provide listeners with an educational and entertaining experience.

The endowment exists solely to perpetuate their vision. Its mission:

  1. Provide a stable source of funds to improve planning and budgeting for radio station operations
  2. Provide dedicated funding for special educational, programming and sound recording preservation projects

Donations to the endowment are not intended to replace our existing fundraising efforts. As a listener-supported public radio station, Bluegrass Country remains dependent on listener support for operations and will continue with its seasonal, on-air fundraising drives.
