- Convenient: Your automatic donation will be made through direct deposit.
- Flexible: You can cancel or change your contribution at any time by giving us a call or sending us an email.

All contributions are tax deductible to the extent that they exceed the fair market value of any thank-you gift received, as allowed by the IRS. Your receipt will indicate the amount of your tax-deductible contribution.
Your first renewal notice will be mailed three months before your membership lapses, unless you are a Sustaining Star, in which case your membership never lapses!
Your gift will be sent within eight weeks of your donation. If the demand for a particular gift is very high, we may have to reorder or substitute a similar item. If you have not received your gift after eight weeks, please contact our office to check the status.
If you choose to fulfill your contribution by installment, your gift will be ordered after we receive your second installment. In order to control costs, we keep very few items in stock. Please allow eight weeks after your second installment for your thank-you gift to arrive.
You can double or even triple your contribution to the ETV Endowment if your company has a matching gifts program. View the complete list or type in your company's name on our donation form to see it is a partner.
If you're mailing a donation, please obtain a matching gift form from your personnel office, complete your portion and mail it with your donation to this address:
ETV Endowment of South Carolina
401 E. Kennedy Street
