Support the Programming You Love on Giving Tuesday

By Coby C. Hennecy, CPA, CFRE

Giving Tuesday

Give to the curious. The adventurers. The storytellers.

Every South Carolinian has free access to the arts, sciences, history, children’s programming and trusted news because of our generous Endowment members. We’re proud to be celebrating our 40th year in 2017 – our ETV Endowment members have made it possible, allowing us to capture the stories of our state for the past four decades.

Support our next 40 years by giving to the ETV Endowment on November 28th. Why the 28th? It marks the sixth year of #GivingTuesday, a global movement that encourages individuals to give to their communities. In just one year, this movement inspired more than $177 million in giving across 98 countries. Let’s make an impact right here in South Carolina.

We’re local partners.

We’re a public-private partnership that works to benefit our entire state. Individuals, corporations and foundations make local programs like Walter Edgar’s Journal, Making It Grow and Sonatas and Soundscapes possible as well as national programs like Morning Edition, Curious George and Victoria.

We’ve been diligent stewards for 40 years, earning us the highest Charity Navigator rating six years in a row. We’re honored to be ranked in the top 5% of charities nationally.

We’re proud storytellers.  

SCETV and SC Public Radio capture stories, entertain families and showcase the good of South Carolina. Nearly 40 years ago, shows like NatureScene captured the thrill of our own backyard. Today, we inspire that same sense of wonder through shows like Expeditions with Patrick McMillan. SCETV Passport and the SCETV mobile app bring learning to South Carolinians wherever we are.    

There’s more to explore. More to uncover. Support the next 40 years at the ETV Endowment.
