Public Radio International
Public Radio International (PRI) "is an independent, nonprofit corporation governed by an international Board of Directors composed of business and community leaders. Like many nonprofits, we are funded by a combination of earned and contributed income.
"Of PRI's $22 million in annual revenues, approximately 21% is secured through grants and gifts, with 63% coming from earned revenues (station fees, investments, and miscellaneous income) and 14% from underwriting. The generous contributions foundations, corporations, and individuals make each year are essential to PRI. We are grateful for this vital support." 
"A small group of station leaders established PRI in 1983 to give listeners greater choice in radio programming than had been available. Prior to PRI's founding, NPR was the sole national distributor and, in most cases, carried only its own Washington, D.C.-based productions. PRI was the first organization to distribute locally-produced public radio programs nationally. Since then, PRI has launched more new programs from independent and station-based producers than any other network." 
They received a $1.25 million grant from the Ford Foundation in 2005.
