About Us

PBS Wisconsin Auction supports our mission to boldly enrich, educate and entertain diverse audiences of children and adults through the innovative use of television production and broadcasting, other communication technologies, and community engagement. PBS Wisconsin provides access to local and national content, extending its reach and impact in the communities we serve. PBS Wisconsin’s four channels – PBS Wisconsin, The Wisconsin Channel, Create, and PBS Kids 24/7 – are available over the air via antenna and to all cable and satellite providers. Some cable and satellite providers offer all four, while others currently only offer the PBS Wisconsin flagship channel.

The PBS Wisconsin Auction features donated items from businesses and individuals.
