Turner Voices

Philanthropic giving. It's as much a part of the Turner Broadcasting DNA as world-class news gathering or groundbreaking entertainment television. Turner Voices, our signature corporate philanthropy program, brings together our commitment to the communities in which we live and work and our belief in the power of story to effect positive change in the world.

Through the financial support of organizations focused on high school-aged youth and the arts, and by leveraging our greatest assets — our people, products, technology and services — Turner Voices identifies and develops the next generation of storytellers.

Get to know some of our non-profit partners:

  • 21st Century Leaders - Inspires high school juniors and seniors through collaboration with businesses and education leaders.
  • VOX Communications - Offers teens the skills and resources to raise their voices through a printed and online newspaper produced for them and by them.
  • Atlanta Film Festival 365 - An intersection of art, culture and commerce that fosters the growth and support of a strong media arts community.
  • Alliance Theatre's Hertz Stage - Cultivates new playwrights, directors and producers and their original theatrical works.
  • Dad's Garage - Engages, cultivates and inspires artists and audiences alike by producing innovative, scripted and improvised works.
  • GeorgiaFIRST Robotics - Encourages students to explore science, technology, engineering and more.
  • Atlanta Celebrates Photography - Dedicated to the cultivation of the photographic arts and the enrichment of the Atlanta art community.

Apply for Corporate Funding

If your program supports high schooled-aged youth or the arts, we welcome you to submit a corporate funding proposal. Although we accept unsolicited proposals, funding is typically awarded to non-profit organizations [501 c(3) tax exempt] that our Corporate Contributions department has proactively sought for partnerships in which our executives and employees have direct leadership and involvement.  Corporate funding proposals are accepted throughout the year, but annual plans are formulated in the fall for major projects.

All requests will be considered, but due to the high volume of requests, not every request that meets the guidelines will receive funding.
