Your support will enable us to fully achieve the bold future we envision.
Our founders had a vision. They believed that broad public education and a community forum for public dialogue would strengthen civic life in St. Louis. And it has.
We have a long and trusted relationship with our community as a convener, storyteller and leader of civic engagement. No other nonprofit has a comparable opportunity to use its trusted position, compelling content and digital technology for the public good. We have seen how our outstanding local programs promote dialogue in our community and keep us engaged in what’s important.
The Nine Network brings significant value to the St. Louis region. We reach more than 2 million viewers a month in 100 counties in Missouri and Illinois on four digital channels — Nine PBS, Nine World, Nine Create and Nine Kids, our 24/7 children’s channel. With 8½ additional hours of children’s programming on Nine PBS, we provide a total of 32½ hours a day of the most trusted children’s programming on television.
The Nine Network is consistently one of the most watched PBS stations in the country — and often #1 in per capita viewership nationwide.
We are a nonprofit organization that receives approximately 90% of its funding from individuals, businesses and foundations throughout the St. Louis region. With only 10% coming from government sources.
In order to fully realize our mission and vision for the St. Louis region we launched our Igniting the Spirit of Possibility campaign with a goal to raise $50 million — only the second campaign in our 62-year history. With your support, we will be able to expand our community impact work, meet the challenges of rapidly changing technology, and sustain our future as a vital nonprofit organization serving the St. Louis region for generations to come.
We urge you to consider our value and our critical needs. Do not take the Nine Network for granted. Read through our case for support.

Then join us in helping to sustain the Nine Network as a vital educational, cultural and entertainment resource for all of us in the St. Louis region.
