Tips for Non-Profit Organizations

For local radio and television stations across South Carolina, community service is more than a passing concern.  It is a way of doing business.  Every day in South Carolina, from the biggest cities to the smallest towns and everywhere in between, broadcasters are going to bat for community charities, educating residents about important local issues, and delivering lifesaving information and relief in times of crisis or disaster.  Non-profit groups across the state know they can turn to their local radio and television stations for a helping hand.  The tradition of community service by South Carolina broadcasters is unmatched by any other industry and one that we pledge to uphold in the years ahead.  If you want to gain exposure for your charitable organization, school or other civic group, SCBA provides these guidelines for working with the media.
