Tax Deductibility of Gift

All contributions to KPTS are tax deductible as allowed by law. Contributions of $75 or more will be acknowledged at the end of the year with a tax receipt. As required by IRS, this tax receipt will also show the value of any goods (thank you gifts) or services you may have received. Consult with your tax advisor for details or call the membership office if you have further questions.

Matching Gifts Program

You may be able to double, even triple, the value of your contribution to KPTS. Many corporations in south central Kansas will match your contribution – and we thank these businesses for their generous support of public television. Contact your Human Resources department to obtain matching gift information or forms. Once you have completed the form and signed it, send it to our membership office and we will take care of the rest. These forms can be sent separately from your contribution payment.
