Volunteering at KVIE
Did you know every year, KVIE volunteers donate over 10,000 hours of their time in support of Public Television? Over 1,500 volunteers keep KVIE running smoothly by providing clerical support in the office, fundraising crew during our pledge drives, and special events staff for activities at the station and beyond.
KVIE relies on groups of volunteers during our seasonal pledge drives. Groups of 8-12 volunteers staff the KVIE Phone Bank, taking calls from supporters and donors. All data is entered into KVIE’s computer system – volunteers should have basic to intermediate computer knowledge, and the ability to speak clearly in English over the phone. Most groups are seen live on television during their shift – it is a great opportunity for team visibility. Additionally, pledge phone banks receive on-air recognition for their participation. Phone Bank shifts are typically 6-10:30pm seven days a week and 9:00am-1:00pm on weekends during Membership Pledge Drive dates. School groups are welcome with adult supervision.
