Our Funding

PACTV is funded through franchise agreements between the cable companies and our towns.  Up to 5% of the cable companies' gross annual revenue is passed down to cable subscribers and in turn, some is given to us and some is given to the School Departments in Duxbury and Plymouth. This money goes directly into serving our community and pays for  our expenses (salaries, utilities,  supplies, etc.) and for capital needs (purchase of equipment).

As people choose to cut the cord, our funding goes down. Even though we are a not-for-profit organization, we have never actively fundraised before because our revenue was secure and we didn't want to take away from other nonprofits. Now, we must fundraise so that we can continue to provide the many services our towns rely upon from us. We hope you will consider supporting us with a donation today.
