Become a Sustaining Star

A Sustaining Star membership is an easy, convenient and affordable way to support the programming on SCETV and SC Public Radio by making an ongoing, monthly contribution to the ETV Endowment. Spreading a gift over the year is easier on your budget and gives us the security of steady, reliable contributed dollars to produce and buy the television and radio programs upon which we all depend.

  • 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.
  • Stable: Your membership is always current, and your benefits are never interrupted.
