Your Support Right Now Is Essential Help Us Reach Our Annual Goal Last year was especially difficult for members of our public media family who suffered crippling losses after Hurricanes Florence and Michael. Consequently, fewer UNC-TV viewers have been able to contribute. We’re weathering this situation through careful use of resources—making every dollar count—to provide lifechanging television that educates, informs and alerts North Carolinians, and offers a safe haven for our children. But to stay strong and ever at the ready for you, UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina must raise $3.2 million by June 30 to reach our annual fundraising goal. The goal is daunting, but UNC-TV can overcome this difficult time if every member gives even a modest contribution. Look for this envelope in the mail and please give as generously as possible to help keep the programs and services you cherish coming for another year. Thank you.

For the Marvelous Month of May... May We Suggest a Gift of Life Insurance? An old or new life insurance policy provides an easy way to support UNC-TV. Gwen Davis, a member of the UNC-TV Legacy Society says, “I found naming UNC-TV as one of the beneficiaries of my life insurance policy to be a simple and convenient means of estate planning.” Please contact giftplanning@unctv.org or 877-485-3200 for more information.

Recognizing Special Friends

THANKS FOR WATCHING AND SUPPORTING...

Catch a peerless performance by this stellar songwriter, musician and showman from his Paisley Park Studios in 1999 (of course). Along with Morris Day, Larry Graham, Cynthia Robinson, Maceo Parker, George Clinton, Lenny Kravitz and more, Prince delights with dazzling displays of musical ingenuity on some of his biggest hits.
