The Peabody Awards

Peabody Awards Giving Opportunities 2017-2018

Since 1940, the University of Georgia has been home to the most prestigious honor in broadcast media, the Peabody Awards. Housed in the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication, Peabody is a cultural institution with international reach that each year identifies the most compelling stories across media platforms and genres.

Private funding is critical to the program's continued success. Unlike similar awards, Peabody does not operate from an endowment, but on proceeds from ticket sales to its annual awards ceremony. In a concerted effort to sustain the excellence the program is known for and to extend its impact, Peabody has created the following giving levels:

Director's Circle ($10,000 Level)

Director's Circle The Director's Circle are transformational donors committed to the preservation of the television and broadcast industry's most cherished and distinguished award. Each year, Director's Circle members celebrate the annual Peabody Award winners at the red-carpet awards ceremony in New York, as well as through special events in Atlanta and Athens.

· Two (2) tickets to the 77th Annual Peabody Awards Ceremony
