Vehicle Donation

Support KET by donating your car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or RV, essentially turning something you don’t need into something you want — quality programs on KET. KET picks up the vehicle, at no cost, and once it has been sold at auction, the sale proceeds are donated to KET in your name. You will also receive a one-year membership to KET.

For more information, call (toll free) 855-710-0538.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of KET. Each year, some 1,000 friends share their time, talents, and inspiration to help make KET stronger. During on-air pledge drives, individuals or groups from various businesses, schools, community and civic organizations create the magic of live television.

KET also presents 20 or more events a year statewide, all in need of volunteer support. Volunteers are welcome on committees (logistics, silent auction, or sponsorship) for annual events in Louisville, Lexington, and Northern Kentucky.
