Giving Day Success

11/16/19

Thanks to the many individuals who helped us with another successful Peabody Giving Day. Together they raised more than $33,750, which when combined with a dollar-for-dollar match challenge, the final amount is $67,562!

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 are honored to continue that legacy. Donations made to the memorial fund that carries his name will be used to support student engagement and outreach.

Additional proceeds directed to the Peabody Support Fund will further the scholarly research activities and initiatives of the Peabody Media Center, which focuses on public engagement with award-winning programs.

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. For more information, visit this link.
