Summary: This is TBS’s signature corporate philanthropy program, which is focused on high school-aged youth and the arts. The program wants to create the next generation of storytellers. Past partners include: 21st Century Leaders, which helps high school juniors and seniors through collaboration with businesses and education leaders and VOX Communications, which helps teens produce a printed and online newspaper.
TBS also offers Employee Volunteer Grants. When an employee spends 30 hours or more volunteering with a nonprofit, they may apply for a monetary grant to support the organization. And the TBS Matching Grant Program will give up to $500 to match an employee donation made to an educational institution or arts related nonprofit.
