WGCU is on a mission to help kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder —

but we can’t do it alone!


For 37 years, WGCU Public Media has believed – and continues to believe – in a lifetime of learning for everyone, including kids. This Giving Tuesday, December 1, we’re asking you to do everything you can to further support WGCU’s At-Home Learning initiative.


As education has moved from the classroom and into the home during the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers and families across the country are turning to public media to help bolster children’s learning. Over these past several months, WGCU has pooled our media resources to close the learning gap for children in Southwest Florida.


We’ve modified our broadcast schedule for Pre-K through 12th-grade curriculum and added to our list of FREE digital resources for families and teachers – including WGCU’s At-Home Learning Facebook Group.


When it comes to educating our children, we will do everything we can. Do everything you can right now and make a donation today.


You don’t have to wait until December 1st.

Make a gift TODAY to help SWFL kids!




Longtime donor Jinny Johnson is a proud supporter of WGCU’s At-Home Learning Channel!
