kNOwMORE Nonprofits is an educational television series whose mission is to create awareness and share stories about nonprofit agencies across the state. Our shows may appear on a variety of television stations including including KET, Paducah, Louisville, Bell County & Northern Kentucky . See schedule. All show segments are also available in HD on-line, on-demand 24/7.
To meet the production budget for each of our 30-minute episodes, we rely on full episode and individual segment sponsors. Though they may choose to do so, featured nonprofit agencies are not required to fund their segment but we so ask that our they help us secure their individual feature video segment sponsor from their donor pool.*
