The Peabody Awards

Support Stories That Matter

Support Peabody AwardsThanks to everyone who helped with another successful Peabody Giving Day on Nov. 14. The campaign brought in over $77,000 to the foundation.
A special thanks to those who gave in memory of the late Barry Sherman. The former Peabody Awards director and Grady College professor considered the program a "sacred trust" and we proudly continue that legacy. Donations made to the Barry Sherman Memorial Fund will be used to support student engagement and outreach, especially through the new Peabody Internship Agency to be launched in January 2020.
Gifts to the Peabody Support Fund benefit the scholarly research activities and initiatives of the Peabody Media Center, which focuses on amplifying award-winning programs and the important social issues they address each year. The Media Center creates unique digital productions such as Peabody Conversations that delve into the "story behind the story."
The Media Center also sponsors events and scholarly reports that further the impact of storytelling around issues such as women’s rights, mental health, racial justice, gun violence, immigration, and the environment. It also serves to remind citizens of the importance of resilient, quality journalism to democracy, especially in times of threats and duress.
Despite being named for philanthropist and Georgia native George Foster Peabody, the awards program does not operate from an endowment and must rely on entry fees and ticket sales to its annual awards ceremony to sustain the program.
For those who missed Peabody Giving Day, it's never too late to make an impact. The Friends of Peabody is a membership program that allows diverse constituencies the opportunity to support the vital work of the Peabody Media Center on an annual basis.
