The B.W. Bastian Foundation strives to build community and understanding by supporting local and national institutions. The Foundation supports programs and organizations that benefit, encourage and preserve the rights of individuals who promote equality.
The B.W. Bastian Foundation has supported KUED for more than ten years. The Foundation supports KUED's Diverse Voices campaign, which uses PBS and KUED local productions as a springboard for open dialogue and meaningful action. In addition to local support of KUED, the Foundation has also supported several national programs including Frontline: "In the Age of Aids," In The Life and Oliver Button is a Star.
Created by Bruce Bastian, the B.W. Bastian Foundation has adopted a policy of only supporting organizations that wholeheartedly embrace the principle of equality. Bastian funding places a strong commitment on programs and organizations that benefit, encourage, and preserve the rights of individuals, and promote equality for the GLBT community.
Bastian's philanthropy encourages action by empowering institutions who work for human rights and social change, from grass roots organizations to national political institutions.
Because of his belief that the arts inspire people to be their true selves and open their lives from inside, Bastian has been a supporter of many performing arts organizations including KUED, the University of Utah, Ballet West, and the Utah Symphony and Opera. His funding also includes environmental organizations, wildlife funds and homeless shelters. Political committees and candidates nationwide have been recipients of his funding.
