Giving & Benefits

Much of the thanks for KET’s essential programs and services belongs to the 38,000 Member families in eight states who show us with their donation that they believe in KET. Whatever amount works for you, works for KET — the important choice is to give. You can make convenient, affordable Sustaining donations each month, or a single contribution once a year. All gifts are tax-deductible.
