Northern Dakota County's Local Community TV Station

Town Square Television is the local community television station serving Inver Grove Heights, Lilydale, Mendota, Mendota Heights, South St. Paul, Sunfish Lake, and West St. Paul. We rely on donations from people like you to continue telling the stories of our community. Our donors help us to provide local programming like high school Game of the Week, school and holiday concerts, INSIGHT 7 local news stories, government meetings, candidate information and election coverage, and community celebrations like parades, graduations, and royalty coronations. Many of these are produced by our staff with the help of our amazing volunteers, but more than half are produced by local people and nonprofits who need our help. Your gift helps us to remain the only uniquely local media station located in the same community with our viewers.

Your generosity allows us to make important family and civic events, from graduations to public meetings to non-profit fundraisers, available to all, providing video participation and coverage in a range of formats, including streaming, cable television, social media, digital downloads or media copies upon demand.

This year, we will be LIVE from our studio for Give to the Max Day on November 17th! We will be showcasing northern Dakota County nonprofits, schools and many other friends and partners, including:

  • Leadership from GiveMN, the Give to the Max Day sponsors!
  • Alliance for Community Media President Mike Wassenaar
  • Neighbors, Inc.
  • The Open Door Pantry
  • Inver Grove Heights Schools
  • Inver Hills Community College and Dakota County Technical College
  • South St. Paul Lions Club
  • South Robert Street Business Association
  • Two Rivers High School
  • St. Croix Lutheran Academy
  • Heritage Organization of Romanian Americans in Minnesota (HORA-MN)
  • The UpTake
  • And MANY MORE!

Our Board of Directors hosts Caleb and Andrew will conduct in-studio interviews and showcase videos from our community. Join the fun and watch us LIVE from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Comcast Xfinity 14/HD799,, and Facebook! It will be a great night to celebrate Minnesota’s giving holiday while donating to our local nonprofits and schools and catching some of your favorites LIVE on TV.

Remember, your support of Town Square Television is matched with a special Give to the Max fund by our Board of Directors! The first $2,000 will be matched dollar for dollar! Watch for matching opportunities during early giving November 1st to the 16th AND on GTTM Day November 17th. And EVERY donation, regardless of size, could win us a special "Golden Ticket" gift from GiveMN from an extra $250 to as much as $10,000!

Your gift supports our work in telling the stories of northern Dakota County. Please give, and please take a moment to share why you gave to support Town Square Television. Post on social media, send a text to a friend, email a colleague, or just chat with a neighbor. Give to the Max is about giving together, so please help us reach more people as we build our community.
