If you have limited financial opportunities but still wish to lend a hand, please know that we greatly appreciate any contribution you can make in support of our work.
Underwrite our TV broadcast
In 2011, the Steuben Parade was broadcast live on PBS as a two-hour program. It was a huge success, and we are proud to announce that we will be broadcasting our Parade again in 2012 - live and in repeats on several affiliates in the nationwide PBS family. PBS reaches an above-average audience with regards to cultural and international interest as well as personal wealth, which makes our format a great platform to advertise. Since PBS is a non-commercial station, there are only few TV spots available and restrictions apply. However, a 30-second-spot during the Steuben Parade is a great was to get your message across. We are offering spots to our "Underwriters" on a $25,000 level, and we offer the typical PBS "slides" to our partners on the $10,000 level. Find out all details about our TV broadcast and our Underwriter program here.
