Broadband Philanthropy: How the Foundation for Rural Service Supports Rural Communities – Pam Becker
On this episode, we are joined by Pam Becker, the Executive Director of the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS), a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life in rural communities. With over two decades of experience in the fundraising sector, Pam is a strong advocate for advancing rural broadband access and helping rural communities thrive. The FRS offers a range of programs to support rural communities, including scholarships for high school graduates attending college or technical school, a youth tour that brings students to Washington DC to learn about civic engagement, and the FRS Congressional Broadband Tour Visits which educate members of Congress and their staff about the importance of rural broadband access.
