Foundation Support

Foundation support is critical to the programs and services Nine PBS provides in the St. Louis region. And many foundations find that their support of Nine PBS is closely aligned with their missions and values. Some foundations support programs that expand learning opportunities; others contribute to initiatives that help strengthen our community. Many also work in partnership with the Nine Network to build community resources as an investment in the future of our region.

Nine PBS also offers opportunities for foundations to support and become identified with broader initiatives, such as Homeland, our initiative on immigration that includes a documentary scheduled to air on public television stations nationwide in 2012.

Foundations that support Nine PBS achieve a high level of visibility and recognition for their charitable contributions, in our community and beyond. We recognize our supporting foundations on air, online, in Nine PBS Magazine, and in relevant promotions and collateral material.
