The ABF gains charitable donations through its core membership base and a few spectacular fundraising events throughout the year. Another chief source of income is through media packages provided by media owners like Oracle Airtime Sales to the ABF. These packages are either auctioned at a fundraiser or sold on to the highest industry bidder.
“This is just one way providing instant relief to many of our validation requests,” says Sharlene. “We have directly seen the benefits of ABF donations over the years and as a result have formed many solid relationships with our valued media owner partners.”
