When most people consider giving to support public broadcasting, they think of making a pledge and writing a check. We receive many generous gifts this way each year. But there are other ways people make a difference by supporting KVIE. A special giving program called KVIE Explorer Fund is an honorary way in which friends of KVIE can plan a bequest gift. Or, you may choose to a make a gift of stock, real estate, life insurance, or consider establishing a trust.

Other ways to give include asking your employer to enroll in our Matching Gifts Program, or by donating a used car, truck, boat, or motorcycle to our used vehicle program.

Browse through the Support section of our Web site for more details about each of these initiatives.

Public television for Sacramento and the Central Valley of California reaches upscale consumers, community leaders and business decision-makers.

What is Sponsorship?
In the commercial world of television sponsorship is called advertising. In the world of public television, our Corporate Support department seeks sponsorship funded by corporations and the business community, government agencies, unions, associations, and foundations. Organizations of all sizes support KVIE in many significant ways. In return for this support, KVIE runs sponsor messages and credits on our air, or in conjunction with an event or a community outreach effort.

Why do Organizations Sponsor KVIE Programs?

  • Image - Build a Brand
    KVIE builds brand identification and strengthens your corporate image. Sponsors benefit from the "halo effect" of being associated with KVIE and its mission to make a meaningful contribution to our community. 90% of Americans have a more positive image of companies that take part in cause-related marketing. 74% of PBS viewers believe that PBS sponsors are committed to quality and excellence. And almost two-thirds of PBS viewers are more likely to purchase the product or service of a PBS sponsor. And your firm's support will have helped make possible the continuation of a tradition of quality, non-commercial television on KVIE.

  • Greater Impact - Credible and Memorable
    Sponsor messages have greater impact in the low-clutter environment found only on public television. Also, prohibition against "hard sell" spots, and trustworthiness of KVIE combine to make Sponsorship message extremely credible and memorable. PBS' dignified approach to on-air support is appreciated and respected by its viewers.
  • Greater Value - Build a Relationship
    KVIE has unique marketing opportunities for corporations and business partners that the commercial broadcasters or cable network cannot offer. Strengthen your ties to the community and increase the effectiveness of your comprehensive marketing campaign through numerous community- and member-based possibilities KVIE has for its sponsors. On KVIE, sponsors do much more than buying a flight of spots; they build a relationship with the community they serve.
