Supporting our own
in times of need...


The Sports Video Group established the Sports Broadcasting Fund in 2012 in order to help those in need.

“The sports-television industry is a family of talent, creatives, techs, and crew who depend on each other in the studio and the field and now, with the SVG Sports Broadcasting Fund, at home,” says Ken Aagaard, SVG Broadcasting Fund Advisory Board chairman. “In a business underpinned by a freelance workforce, it is especially important that we develop a process for helping out our peers and their families when they are struck by serious misfortune.”

The Sports Broadcasting Fund is supported by generous donations from industry professionals as well as ticket sales to the Sports Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
