KVIE operates with the support of our members. $35 is our basic membership, truly the backbone of KVIE, providing the money needed to run the station, paying everything from our electric bill to our PBS dues. Donors at higher levels provide the money needed to go beyond day-to-day operations and plan for the future.

KVIE recognizes members who give $1,000 or more as members of our Masterpiece Circle.

The support of Masterpiece Circle members makes it possible for us to plan for the public television of our future together here in the Central Valley and Sierra. With the advent of digital television, and other new technologies, KVIE needs resources to make plans for our future service. We will be broadcasting multiple television signals – some with high-definition television and some with data to enhance the programs. We have many decisions to make about the television station we will become in the future, and Masterpiece Circle members give us the support we need to explore our options. We thank our Masterpiece Circle members for giving to the station at levels that allow us to plant the seeds for future projects.

KVIE Masterpiece Circle members are invited to special events at the station, receive complimentary thank-you gifts, and on air recognition of their support of the station. They are invited to a luncheon with our KVIE President and General Manager, and they have the opportunity to highlight the good work of another non-profit they support with a spot on television.
