The mission of the Turner Foundation (TFI) is to protect and restore the natural systems – air, land, and water – on which all life depends.
Reflect the entrepreneurial spirit of our Founder and Chairman Ted Turner 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.
