MORE Nonprofits" Television Series
Prosper Media Group, Inc. has produced a
ground-breaking TV series about life without
MISSION: In order to motivate people to find their passion for helping, kNowMore Nonprofits provides current, informative and educational overviews of impactful nonprofits located throughout Kentucky, recognizing that without these nonprofits the health and stability of our communities would be at risk.
OBJECTIVE: This educational series will further awareness about the work being accomplished by non-profit agencies across all nonprofit sectors throughout the state of Kentucky. A citizen should be able to name (at least) 5 local nonprofit agencies in their community and know what they do. KNOW MORE. With funding we will be able to travel across the state (from Pikeville to Paducah) and cover stories on various nonprofit agencies. 24 on-location stories and 24 studio interviews will be produced over 12 episodes that specifically address a nonprofit’s community impact. CALL TO ACTION: Start a conversation, get involved, volunteer, donate, spread the word or get help from your local non- profit agenciest.
The first shows in our series featured stories on Friend For Life Cancer Support of Louisville, KY, the Bluegrass Community Foundation & the Kentucky Nonprofit Network. The pilot series aired on KET in November and thereafter was picked up by the network as an on-going series. The second episode featured stories on the online coupon service, Pete's Deals, where a portion of the proceeds go to a nonprofit charity of the customer's choice; Get Healthy Kentucky and new statewide health initiatives, including Second Sunday; American Heart Association of Central Kentucky's Go Red for Women and a look at Bluegrass PRIDE's environmental educational initiatives. The third show in the series featured the Bluegrass Community Connector Project, which will identify 100 key individuals who naturally increase communication and cooperation across city limits; as well as Kentucky Space, an educational nonprofit enterprise that actually designs satellites. The Mountain Association for Community Economic Development's project to combat predatory lending in Berea and Eastern Kentucky was also featured. The theme of the fourth show is kids and education and though content is still being finalized it will illustrate "life without" a Frankfort nonprofit and may feature the Living Arts & Science Center. Though current shows simply promote awareness for the agencies discussed, with funding, the long-term goal of the program is to create a surreal viewpoint by illustrating what life would be like without these services across all service sectors statewide including but not limited to education, environment, health, arts or human services. Based on National PBS statistics, the demographic for this type of program is male & female adults between the ages of 25 and 65. Typically holding college degrees and earning up to $75K in income per year.
