Why Give to the ETV Endowment?

By Coby Cartrette Hennecy, CPA, CFRE

Be Exceptional

We’re your go-to for Exceptional Entertainment, Quality Family Time, In-Depth Reporting and Community Connection.

SCETV and SC Public Radio capture stories, entertain families and showcase the good of South Carolina. From local, original programs like Walter Edgar's Journal and Making It Grow to nationally and internationally syndicated news magazines and dramas like All Things Considered and MASTERPIECE to commercial-free educational children’s programs like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, exceptional public broadcasting abounds in South Carolina.

But it goes beyond exceptional entertainment. SCETV and SC Public Radio’s programming fosters a more informed and engaged public, offering critical perspectives and insights that engage South Carolinians with their communities and the wider world. It is the ETV Endowment’s belief that exceptional broadcasting cultivates exceptional citizens.

Which is why, with the end of the year fast approaching, we're calling on our exceptional donors—you— to support the programming on SCETV and SC Public Radio with a tax-deductible contribution.

We’re Trustworthy Local Partners.

The ETV Endowment works hard to earn and keep your trust. As a 4-Star Charity Navigator recipient for eight consecutive years, the ETV Endowment has been recognized for its commitment to mission, transparency, accountability and donor stewardship and for its financial health and governance practices. Thank you for your trust and support of our mission.​

We’re Proud Storytellers.

SCETV and SC Public Radio have a rich 60-year legacy as South Carolina’s storyteller and trusted source for entertainment, education, history, culture and news. With the support of the ETV Endowment’s 40,000 active members, SCETV and SC Public Radio have been able to document, preserve and share for generations to come our state’s stories.

There are more stories to explore, discover and share. We hope you’ll show your support this holiday season with an exceptional year-end donation. Because of you, we’ll continue to thrive and serve our community by providing more quality programming on television, radio and online. We’re looking forward to an exceptional 2020!
