Maryland Public Broadcasting Commission
The Maryland Public Broadcasting Commission is an 11-member body appointed by the governor of Maryland that holds MPT's broadcast licenses issued by the Federal Communications Commission. It is MPT's governing body.
The MPT Foundation, Inc. is a private, nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation established in 1981 to encourage increased funding for MPT and to receive donations and grants on MPT's behalf. The Foundation also safeguards MPT's endowment funds in an effort to insulate MPT from economic hard times.
The MPT Foundation is governed by an independent board of directors composed of community leaders who are elected to staggered three-year terms. Directors serve strictly on a voluntary basis.
Funds housed at the MPT Foundation enable MPT to respond to program opportunities that sometimes present themselves off the rhythm of state and federal budget planning cycles. With the support of corporations, foundations, and, above all, individuals, we are truly public broadcasting.
