The Rus Peotter Community Engagement Fund

Russ Peotter Community Engagement Fund

Continue the Legacy of WGBY’s Longest-Serving General Manager

Honor the contributions of Rus Peotter upon his retirement, and help preserve his commitment to the communities of western New England.

WGBY’s impact on western New England has been profound for over 40 years. For the last 15 of those years, there has been a special focus on the station’s role in community engagement — thanks to the leadership of Mr. Peotter. In celebration of his accomplishments and year-end retirement, WGBY invites you to participate in growing this important fund.

With your thoughtful support, The Rus Peotter Community Engagement Fund will continue Mr. Peotter's legacy of engaging the public through local production and programming, education outreach, and community discourse. It will support such WGBY efforts as:

  • Stipends for internships and/or fellowships.
  • Local productions and/or special initiatives that focus on the people and stories of western New England.
