It is worth noting that several national sponsorship entities exist that are affiliated with, but are not a part of, PBS. These include:
- Sponsorship Group For Public Television (SGPTV): Housed at WGBH, SGPTV represents underwriting inventory from WGBH as well as independent producers. Contact Suzanne Zellner: (617) 300.3725. Website: http://www.sgptv.org/
- WNET/Thirteen sells their nationally-districuted programs and others. Contact: David Raphael: 312.698.8999. Web site: http://www.wnet.org/support/sponsorship/
- WETA sells their nationally-distributed program and others. Contact: Adam Gronski: 703-998-2644
- National Public Media (NPM): NPM, owned by NPR, WGBH and PBS, represents both PBS and NPR as well as a number of local stations for online sponsorship, working to sell banner and sponsorship inventory on these public media web sites. NPM also works with potential underwriters across the country seeking dollars for local station underwriting as part of a multi-market broadcast sponsorship, which is usually not otherwise obtainable through a local development effort: http://www.nationalpublicmedia.com
- Public Television Major Market Group (MMG): The MMG is a leadership organization of full-service PBS stations located in the top 30 U.S. markets. While the group is not a sales entity, it has engaged in work to standardize underwriting guidelines across major markets to better leverage national and multi-market sales opportunities.
