A Steadfast Friend By necessity, many of us are staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. This allows time for reflection and for doing things we’ve put off. We are grateful to the individuals who realize that now, more than ever, a legacy to UNC-TV benefits our entire state by bringing education home for students, emergency communications for NC and, of course, entertaining escapes for you. During this time, friends from Mt. Holly to Greensboro and Nantahala to the Outer Banks connected with us to add UNC-TV to their estate plan. For more information regarding a legacy gift in support UNC-TV, please visit unctvgift.org, email giftplanning@unctv.org, or call 877-485-3200.
