There are plenty of media sources for international, national, state, and even Chicagoland news – but as a hyper-local nonprofit news organization, NCTV17 is uniquely positioned to cover what is happening in the 4th largest city in Illinois: Naperville – our community!

Every day, through the power of television, NCTV17 tells stories that help residents feel more informed, engaged and connected to the town they call home.

We know local news matters. It’s why we’re dedicated to ensuring every resident has free access to fact-based, unbiased and timely information on the local issues that affect their lives.

Your gift of support ensures our stories don’t live behind a paywall. Your gift helps us tell more Naperville stories on air and online!

One-Time Donation

All gifts are tax deductible but every gift ensures all residents can make informed decisions at a local level and be connected and actively engaged in their community.

Monthly Donation

News happens 24/7/365. By making a monthly gift, you spread your financial impact across the entire year and provide a reliable income stream, allowing NCTV17 to focus more resources on our mission. If your circumstances change, you can increase or pause your giving at any time.

Company Matching Gift

Many companies offer a matching gift program for their employees. This is an easy way to double your gift and make a greater impact for NCTV17. Ask your Human Relations department if your employer has a matching gift program and contact donations@nctv17.org if you require any documentation from the station.


Planned Giving

Charitable planned gifts through an estate plan, will, charitable annuity, or trust offer you an opportunity to provide critical financial support to Naperville’s nonprofit TV station while receiving benefits in return. Please consult your financial advisor, tax accountant or attorney to determine the best way for you to give a Planned Gift. For example:

  • Gift of Securities
    A gift of publicly traded stocks or mutual funds to support the mission of the NCTV17.
  • Beneficiary
    Naming NCTV17 as a beneficiary of your Life Insurance Policy or IRA.
  • Bequest
    Including NCTV17 in your will, estate, or trust. This will not affect your cash flow in your lifetime but will provide a meaningful legacy gift.
  • Charitable Remainder Trust
    A charitable remainder trust is an irrevocable trust that pays you during your lifetime. The remainder is paid to NCTV17 upon your death.
  • Lead Trust
    A lead trust is an irrevocable arrangement that provides annual gift income from the lead trust assets to NCTV17 over a period of years. At the end of that period, the remaining assets are given to non-charitable beneficiaries, usually children or grandchildren. Lead trusts are particularly appropriate for assets that are likely to appreciate substantially over the life of the trust (typically 10-20 years).
  • Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
    A DAF is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to this nonprofit directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).
