TeleFund & WinterPledge

KET is proud to bring you the best in informative, engaging, and entertaining broadcast programs throughout the year. TeleFund (March) and WinterPledge (December) are KET’s on-air membership drives that provide funds to purchase and produce programs you enjoy year-round.

Tell KET which programs matter to you with your gift

During these membership drives, KET invites you to tell us with your gift the programs you value most; your vote then helps determine the new broadcast season and budget. This is the easiest way to renew your support — or become the newest member of the KET family. You can also receive exclusive thank-you gifts, including tickets to concerts and other unique KET experiences.
