Friends of South Dakota Public Broadcasting
Friends of South Dakota Public Broadcasting is a 501 (c)(3) organization which supports SDPB's mission of lifelong learning through fundraising and advocacy. By using a variety of funding sources, including underwriting, grants and direct appeals to viewers, listeners and other shareholders, Friends of SDPB pays for programming and program-related services for the network.
SDPB is a vital community resource producing and broadcasting high-quality, commercial-free programs and valuable community outreach projects that educate, enlighten and entertain.
SDPB provides to everyone in the state of South Dakota four different television channels - SDPB 1, Create, World and SDPB's KIDS. We also cover the state with radio signal through our many radio transmitters located across the state.

Our Education Specialist provides classroom resources for teachers, workshops for educational institutions, information for home-schoolers, parents and child-care providers, continuing education courses for college students and adults, and local educational television programs, as well as conducting other outreach projects for all of the citizens of South Dakota.
