Overview

Support one of the University of Georgia’s cultural gems on the second-annual Peabody Giving Day on Thursday, November 14. This year, we’re paying tribute to the late Barry Sherman, former director of the Peabody Awards (1991-2000) and telecommunications professor in the Grady College. Sherman considered the Peabody Awards a “sacred trust” and is credited with raising the program’s national profile and reputation during his tenure. He died unexpectedly on May 2, 2000, during a lunchtime basketball game on campus.

“Barry was passionate about Peabody and teaching. I still hear stories from former students about his influence on their education and careers,” his widow, Candy Sherman, said. “I know he’d appreciate how Peabody continues to celebrate media excellence and provide students unique learning experiences.”

One such initiative is the new Peabody Internship Agency, which offers students hands-on opportunities to work on Peabody’s cultural mission. Gifts also benefit the Peabody Media Center, which focuses on public engagement with award-winning programs.

Please help us meet our goal to secure 100 backers on Peabody Giving Day!

 

What Your Gifts Will Benefit

Gifts to the Barry Sherman Memorial Fund will support:

  • The Barry Sherman Memorial Fund: Established after his untimely death in 2000, the fund supports student engagement and participation with the Peabody Awards program, its annual ceremony and outreach activities.
  • The Peabody Internship Agency: This experiential learning course provides a collaborative and convergent internship opportunity for UGA students. The internship includes individual tracks in video production/editing, journalism, advertising/public relations/marketing, and research. Together, students will work with recent Peabody Award winners and archival materials to gain valuable knowledge about the program and its cultural legacy.

Gifts to the Peabody Program Fund will support:

  • The Peabody Media Center: Peabody’s scholarly research and digital programming arm builds awareness of recent winners and nominees in addition to highlighting the rich content available in the Peabody Archive. Through public convenings, scholarly reports and digital media productions, the Media Center amplifies emerging voices in storytelling and the issues they address, such as the LGBTQ community, immigration policies, mental health, and women’s rights. The Media Center also serves to remind citizens of the importance of quality journalism to democracy, especially in times of threat or duress.

Gifts of $100 or more qualify donors for membership in the Friends of Peabody. The full amount of your gift is deductible as a charitable contribution.
