Support MFPG and OutCasting
MFPG is a nonprofit organization fully recognized as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as well as by New York State, so your support is tax-deductible. We are entirely nonprofit and noncommercial, but like any other business we have expenses that must be paid. In the past we have gotten foundation and corporate grants, and we hope to again, but right now, our main source of income is individual donations. So we hope you'll be generous in your support this holiday season so that we can continue to produce OutCasting, public radio's LGBTQ youth program. Monthly giving provides us with a steady stream of income, but we welcome non-recurring gifts as well, of course!
Network For Good is more closely aligned with the nonprofit community, so it's a better way to donate. Both Network for Good and PayPal give you easy options to donate online, including monthly donations.
For one-time donations of more than $500, please consider sending a check so that we can avoid the fees the online services charge, which increase for larger donations. You can send your check to
Media for the Public Good, Inc.
Why support OutCasting?
For gifts above $250, please consider sending a check. At those levels, the percentages that the online services take start to add up.
Please consider monthly giving. It's one of the best ways to ensure a steady funding stream for OutCasting and it's an easier way to make a significant donation. If you give $50 a month, that's a $600 annual donation to MFPG; $100 a month gets you over the $1,000 mark annually and turns you into a major donor. But whatever works best for you is fine.
After you give, please check with your employer to see if it has a matching gift program — many companies have one, and it's an easy way to leverage your donation to have a bigger benefit for MFPG.

We are actively seeking underwriters (businesses and nonprofit organizations) and Founding Supporters — people, businesses, foundations, and anyone else who wants to support LGBTQ youth and allies and their involvement with OutCasting through tax-deductible donations of any amount — and particularly major donations of $10,000 and above.
If you're interested in showing your support of the LGBTQ community by empowering its young members, please have a look at the the Join OutCasting page to see what youth participants are saying about the show. Then, if you like what you see, call us at (914) 674-0900 Ext. 58 or send us an e-mail. Or just make your donation as described at the top of this page.
