Where The Money Goes

Last week, we looked at where WFIU's funding comes from. Now let's take a closer look at where that money is spent.

Last week, we looked at where WFIU’s funding comes from. Now let’s take a closer look at where that money is spent:

  • Network Fees: National Public Radio (NPR), Public Radio International (PRI), American Public Media (APM) membership dues.
  • Program Purchases/Production: This line consists of costs of local program productions and payment of rights to broadcast nationally syndicated programs.
  • Fund Raising: Cost of on-going community outreach and fundraising.
  • Technical Support: Cost and maintenance of broadcast equipment.
  • Promotion/Community Support: Cost of advertising, outreach activities, and publication of Directions in Sound.
  • Management: WFIU uses the management, business, and accounting services of the Indiana University Radio Television Services (IURTS). We share these services with WTIU-TV, Educational Services, and other support units within IURTS.
  • Loss on Long-term Pooled Investments.

*With exception of Network Fees, each expenditure category includes staff salaries.
