Dear ETV Endowment Member,

As the summer draws to a close and kids head back to school, I think about the role SCETV and SC Public radio play in educating, informing and entertaining our viewers. We are bombarded with so much information from social media and other sources that it is increasingly important to be able to have a reliable source of high-quality programming. 

People of all ages turn to SCETV and SC Public Radio because they know they can trust our news, documentaries and other programs. In fact, for the 16th consecutive year, PBS and its members stations have been named #1 in public trust among American institutions in a nationwide annual survey.

PBS KIDS is also viewed by parents as the most educational media brand, substantially outranking other cable and commercial networks. It provides quality commercial-free family time. 

The ETV Endowment works hard each day to earn and keep your trust. For the eighth consecutive year, the ETV endowment has placed in the top 4% of all U.S. charities evaluated by Charity Navigator. Our rating is evidence that we are trustworthy stewards  of the gifts that are entrusted to us. With your trust and support of our mission, we will continue to serve our community for many years to come. 

Here's to a new season of information and inspiration, thanks to you!
