Posted 26 Jul 2012

CONWAY, Ark. (AETN) — The Grainger Foundation has donated $5,000 to the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) Foundation in support of educational programming on AETN. 

“This grant will be used to help purchase quality, educational programming to air on AETN,” Mona Dixon, AETN Foundation chief operating officer and director of development, said. “It is gratifying to know that our programs are making an impact around the state.“We are grateful to The Grainger Foundation for its generosity in support of our mission.”

This donation was recommended by Dayna Kutsunai, branch manager of W.W. Grainger Inc.’s Springdale location. Grainger has been a part of the Springdale business community for more than 21 years as the leading broad line supplier of maintenance, repair and operating products. 

“We are proud to recommend the programs offered by AETN,” Kutsunai said. “We feel that AETN’s programming is a vital part of our community.” 

The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation based in Lake Forest, Ill., was established in 1949 by William W. Grainger, founder of W.W. Grainger, Inc.

The AETN Foundation exists to raise the funds necessary to support AETN’s mission of enhancing lives through trusted public television programs and educational services.

The Foundation provides Arkansans opportunities to connect with the only statewide public media outlet by becoming a financial donor, corporate or foundation partner, volunteer, or by other means of giving. The AETN Foundation builds relationships between AETN, donors and viewers and is committed to being a transparent and accountable steward of private financial support.
