KCTS 9 Leadership Giving Benefits

Leadership Circle donors help KCTS 9 strengthen its impact on air, online and in the community. Your investment ensures free public access to meaningful programming and diverse viewpoints. We are grateful for your support and hope you will enjoy the benefits of being a major investor in public television.

Increase Your Impact

Today, you have an opportunity to increase the impact of your giving! Thanks to a generous donor, every dollar you give above last year's Leadership circle gift will be matched $1:$1.

For example, if you gave $1,000 last year and you give $1,500 this year, that additional $500 is matched dollar for dollar.
