Plant the Seed for a Beautiful Legacy On October 5, 1970, PBS planted the seed that would blossom into today’s public media (grafted onto our already 15-year-old UNC public television). This fall is a great time to plant a seed—the estate planning seed— for you and your family to ensure your legacy continues blossoming for seasons to come. October 19-25 is National Estate Planning Awareness Week; and, for your peace of mind, we encourage you to make or review your estate plan. For our free Wills Guide, please visit unctv.org/planttheseed. Or for more estate planning information, visit unctvgift.org, email giftplanning@unctv.org or call 877-485-3200

The Challenge Begins with You! While much has changed in 2020, this simple fact remains: our service is rooted in the people and communities who support us throughout the year. Every UNC-TV member makes us stronger and our 2020 UNC-TV Hometown Member Challenge inspires new donors to join our public media family. Every dollar you contribute to the 2020 UNC-TV Hometown Member Challenge Fund doubles in impact when a new donor joins UNC-TV during our upcoming on-air drive. No gift is too small, and every dollar encourages more UNC-TV viewers to follow your lead supporting essential public media services that enrich countless North Carolinians each day. When you see this envelope in your mailbox, please send your special donation today. You can also contribute securely online at unctv.org/memberchallenge.
