Giving Tuesday, November 30, 2021



WGCU is on a mission to help kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder — but we can’t do it alone!

For 38 years, WGCU Public Media has believed – and continues to believe – in a lifetime of learning for everyone, including kids. This Giving Tuesday, November 30, we’re asking you to do everything you can to further support WGCU’s America’s Largest Classroom, Creating Endless Possibilities initiative.

WGCU believes the world is full of possibilities, and so is every child! PBS Kids is the place for positive role models, with fun, lovable characters. It’s where laughter and learning come together, and where kids learn lessons that last a lifetime. This Giving Tuesday, give a gift that continues to grow and thrive, just like our kids.

When it comes to educating our children, we will do everything we can. Help WGCU raise $20,000 by November 30, to ensure future support of children’s programming with no advertisements. Do everything you can right now and make a donation today.

You don’t have to wait until November 30. Make a gift today to help Southwest Florida kids!

“I truly want him to be a PBS kid so he has a sense of growing up with it and it’s a meaningful part of his life. PBS has been such a significant part of my life that I’d really like that to be a continuing gift that I pass on to him.”

Katherine Todd, who watches “Dinosaur Train” and “Clifford” weekdays with her best friend’s 3-year-old grandson, Caleb.

“I remember my introduction to PBS children’s programming and the pleasure it brought me 50-odd years ago and how very much I hope that other children can partake in that pleasure. To tell you the truth, I learned my beginnings of rudimentary Spanish through Sesame Street. I think contributing to WGCU in support of PBS Kids is one of the most worthwhile gifts that a caring adult can make to children they love.”
