The mission of the Turner Foundation is to protect and restore the natural systems – the air, land, and water – on which all life depends.
Reflect the entrepreneurial spirit of our Founder and Chairman by our willingness to be bold and take risks towards our priorities,
Leverage partnerships to maximize the impact of TFI, such as partnerships with other foundations and collaborations between nonprofit organizations, communities, businesses, and government,
Break down the silos between our issue areas and prioritize initiatives with cross-cutting benefits, with a particular focus on city leadership and agriculture initiatives; and
Maintain a diverse “tool box” of approaches to philanthropy.
