Public Media Is a Bold Experiment Your Partnership Makes It All Possible In 2020, the rewards of that experiment have never been more appreciated by those who count on UNC-TV. From the mountains to the coast, UNC-TV is a trusted community partner helping North Carolinians deal with this year’s unprecedented challenges. As we look forward with hope, your gift will help us prepare for uncertainty and continue to provide emergency communications with late-breaking updates on the global pandemic and other crises. And, of course, we’ll continue to provide the entertainment you love. When you see our envelope in your mailbox, please send your donation to UNC-TV or make a contribution today at unctv.org/community. Thank you for your generosity and happy holidays!

We Hope We’re on Your Nice List As we enter this Holiday season, strategic year-end donations benefit UNC-TV and are tax-advantaged for you. A charitable distribution directly from your retirement plan means you’ll pay zero income tax on those hard-earned dollars. Or a donation of appreciated securities allows you, for the full value of those assets, to make a handsome donation— while avoiding capital gains tax. For clarification and more insight, please visit unctvgift.org, email giftplanning@unctv.org or call 877-485-3200.

Join the Generosity Movement Giving Tuesday Is This December 1! Your contribution to UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina helps us help our state as we share its stories, connect North Carolinians to each other and provide valuable educational resources that entertain and inspire.
