TeleFund Is Your Opportunity To Act!


With hundreds of channels competing for your attention, there's just one TV media outlet that exists to serve citizens—not profit from them.

"KET serves all Kentuckians with rich and diverse educational programming and services," said Shae Hopkins, KET executive director and CEO. "Our members that support KET help make this possible. TeleFund is KET's largest single source of funds for the purchase and support of programming that so many Kentuckians enjoy, value and expect."

Join our commitment to the people of Kentucky during TeleFund 2014 and make a tax-deductible contribution today. Your gift, combined with the gifts of thousands of other member families across the Commonwealth, ensures that KET can continue its mission of making Kentucky a better place.
