August Membership Drive Kicks Off Soon

Public Media Connect – ThinkTV and CET – will be kicking off our August Membership Drive this Saturday, August 9, and we have nine days of excellent programming lined-up. Whether you’re into Motown or Downton Abbey, there’s something for everyone. Below is a list of highlights organized by initial airdates. For our full schedule, visit www.CETconnect.org/schedule or www.thinktv.org/onair/schedule.

 

Our membership drives, which we host four times each year, allow us to fund our award-winning on-air programs, our educational efforts both in schools and through professional development for teachers, our arts partnerships and programs, and so much more.

 

At CET, we’re also thrilled to have a Friends of CET grant for the August Membership Drive. This grant will allow us to match new membership dollars up to $50,000.
