The foundation has expanded and enhanced its continuing educational and charitable mission since Independence Public Media relinquished its broadcast license in 2017 and received a one-time payment of $131.5 million through the FCC Broadcast Incentive Auction. Independence Public Media of Philadelphia Inc. was founded in 1981.An experienced grant maker with familiarity to Philadelphia, de Aguiar brings expertise in public media and in connecting communities to IPMF.
De Aguiar was the first managing director of the News Integrity Initiative (NII), a global coalition of partners with a vision for news and information that builds trust and lifts up promising approaches to community problems. Prior to joining NII, de Aguiar spent 12 years at the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation where she designed and directed its Informed Communities grants program, which attracted partnerships with national funders and helped New Jersey become a model for local journalism innovation.
IPMF will focus its giving in the Philadelphia region, which Smith said made de Aguiar’s eight years’ experience in the area attractive to the foundation. From 1997 to 2005, de Aguiar held roles at the Gesu School, Kimmel Center and the Free Library of Philadelphia. She is a member of the board of directors of Resolve Philadelphia and supported Philadelphia-based media organizations in her positions at Dodge and NII.
