Our goal is to finish the building renovations to:
1) Expand our broadcast studio capable of live TV.
2) Expand and update the classrooms.
Nantucket Community Television (NCTV) represents an important and vital grassroots journalism resource for all of the residents and visitors on Nantucket. It is a precious and unique resource which is already serving critical information needs on the Island and with the potential of adding knowledge, depth and educational interest to support Nantucket’s rich history and cultural importance. With financial support, it will contribute to community-building and will spark innovation through new programs for all Nantucket residents—year-round, seasonally, including visitors to our island.
There are opportunities for island businesses to reach new potential not only in e-commerce but more importantly establishing brand recognition in community leadership and networking. Multimedia is 90% of the market reach when managed professionally has profound results when combined with a live broadcast, on-demand streaming online and social media.
We are more than 65% there!

What You Can Do to Help
NCTV has the perfect opportunity for you to double the impact of your gifts. Many companies, both large and small, match the gifts of their employees and retirees. We recommend asking your company if they have a program of this type and how to access it. This is a wonderful way of increasing your impact, but the process must be initiated by you. Please contact Arlene O’Reilly, Director of Development and Marketing.
