Support Stories That Matter

Each year, Peabody Award-winning stories and the issues they address make an impact in communities around the world. The awards reach across several different genres, bringing together notable filmmakers, intrepid journalists, fearless comedians and masterful storytellers to celebrate each other's unique voices and insights into our shared human experience.
Those who believe in such powerful narratives—and the people who tell them—are encouraged to support Peabody with a financial donation.
Gifts benefit the scholarly research activities and initiatives of the Peabody Media Center (PMC), which focuses on public engagement with award-winning programs and their value to the public sphere. The PMC amplifies such voices with unique digital productions such as Peabody Conversations, short backstage interviews that delve into the "story behind the story."
Support Peabody Awards"I love that our show sparks conversation and that people identify so closely with the people we've created," Issa Rae, creator and star of "Insecure," says after receiving a 2017 Peabody Awards for her series exploring the everyday lives of two black women living in L.A. through the lens of race and gender.
The Media Center also sponsors public convenings and scholarly reports that further the impact of storytelling around issues such as women's rights and health, racial justice, gun violence, immigration, and the environment. The Center also serves to remind citizens of the importance of resilient quality journalism to democracy, especially in times of threats and duress.
Expanding the reach of such programming is critical for building the Peabody legacy. Although 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.
That's where becoming a Friend of Peabody can make a difference. The affinity group allows University of Georgia alumni and fans to support the vital work the Peabody Media Center on an annual basis.
