Foundation Builders Program
Missouri Press Foundation's Foundation Builders fund-raising program, which began in 2001, involves making a pledge of advertising revenue. Newspapers can pledge the equivalent of a half-page of advertising revenue annually for one to five years – or indefinitely.
Missouri Press Service will withhold from national advertising checks an amount equal to your newspaper's pledge. MPS's commission also will go to the Foundation.
Click Foundation_Builders_Form_13(2)_2.pdf to download a fax-back form to participate in the Foundation Builders program.
