Clear Channel’s $1Million+ To LA AIDS Project
Gail Chiasson, North American Editor
Clear Channel Communications has exceeded the one-million dollar mark in philanthropic giving to the Los Angeles-based AIDS service organization.
In addition to its history of philanthropic giving, Clear Channel has also served as an outlet to raise awareness about the fight against HIV/AIDS through donated media placements on its world-class radio stations and its outdoor advertising network.
“Clear Channel’s commitment, both through its giving and as a corporate leader for our cause, is simply extraordinary,” said Craig Thompson, executive director, addressing attendees at a reception recognizing corporate donors along with members of AIDS Project Los Angeles Leadership Council. “We’ve been lucky to benefit from the support of Jim Murphy, Clear Channel vice-president, who served as co-chair of APLA’s Board of Directors and is the current co-chair of our Ambassador Council, a group of our closest supporters and allies. Jim has devoted his considerable expertise and tireless support to countless APLA events and initiatives.”
Lisa Dollinger. Clear Channel’s chief communications officer, said, “Clear Channel is proud to join in the great work of AIDS Project Los Angeles – whose mission of community education aligns with our corporate commitment to serve the needs of our communities across the nation.”
