On-Air Sponsorship Business Support

A partnership with NPT is much more than traditional advertising. It is a marketing opportunity that allows you to align your brand with the high impact programs we air.
NPT offers program-specific sponsorships and/or run of schedule sponsorships that can be tailored to complement your
marketing goals and to help ensure that you reach your target audience.

For more information about marketing your business through sponsorship, please contact Derek Anderson at
You can also call 615-687-9938.



Planned Giving

Planned Giving helps you make sure your personal goals are met as part of your ongoing financial, estate, and philanthropic planning, which helps to support those organizations that you care most about. Planning a gift to Nashville Public Television
creates a lasting legacy that will allow future generations in Middle Tennessee to continue to be enriched and educated by public television. 

A bequest to NPT may be made as either a specific dollar amount or as a certain percentage of the estate or of another asset. 
NPT’s federal tax ID number is 62-1740928

For more information, email Daniel Tidwell at or call 615-259-9325.


Tribute gifts

Tribute gifts are meaningful ways to make an impact through your giving, share your belief in NPT’s work, and honor or
remember someone special. Consider making a tribute instead of buying a present for someone's next birthday, meaningful occasion or for the holidays. We will send a letter sharing news of your gift to your designated recipient.
For more information, contact Daniel Tidwell at or call us at 615-259-9325.



Car Donation

NPT’s Vehicle Donation Program
Turn something you don’t want into something you really want.
Donate a Vehicle.

Thinking about getting rid of that old car, boat, motorcycle, truck or other vehicle? Donate it to NPT instead! When you donate your vehicle to NPT, the proceeds support all the programs you love; plus, you will receive a tax deduction when you itemize your return.

How it Works 

It’s simple! All you need is a clear title. Call or fill out the web form below and we'll take care of the rest, including pick–up, at no cost to you. Once your vehicle has been sold, you'll receive a receipt for your tax records, and the sale proceeds will be donated to NPT in your name.  Please expect six to eight weeks before the process is finalized.

More questions? Check out the FAQ or consult A Donor’s Guide to Vehicle Donations issued by the IRS. You can also call us at 615-259-9325 or just complete the vehicle donation form.




NPT's volunteers put the "Public" in Public Television!

NPT counts on the support from our committed and passionate volunteers to keep bringing quality programming and services to Middle Tennessee. Some of the many ways you can get involved:

  • On-air volunteer: Be one of the friendly faces you see on TV during our live fundraising drives.  Come as an individual or with a group of 14 from your work, club or community group.  This is an excellent chance to showcase your organization on television and support a great Nashville institution.
    Contact Lindsey Snyder at for more details.
  • Office support: Lend your administrative skills and support to a variety of projects.
  • Events: Help out at NPT's events, from The Antiques and Fine Arts Appraisal Day to Community Cinema – many hands make light work and keep things running smoothly. NPT has many opportunities for members and friends to connect with NPT in our studios and in the community.

    Are you interested in joining our volunteer team? Please contact Lindsey Snyder at or call 615-259-9325 to let us know how you would like to help. We look forward to hearing from you.

Food and Other In-Kind Donations
