As responsive community leaders, our priorities will change and evolve as we address public needs.
We believe it is important to continue to support those causes Harry Turner invested in throughout his lifetime, as well as to build new paths with wisdom and insight. We believe each of The Turner Foundation's investments will be fundamental pillars in the process of constructing a vital community that offers many unique opportunities and benefits to its citizens and the region.
Historic preservation provides economic and aesthetic benefits to our community. It stabilizes property values and fosters civic beauty and community pride, as well as an appreciation of local history.
Beautification efforts, such as public art initiatives and community gardens, are a reflection of both our community’s pride and a commitment to its over-all well-being.
Community revitalization initiatives include partnerships with local government, residents, and businesses to rebuild and redevelop the physical fabric of our community.
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life in the greater Springfield/Clark County community. The vision of The Turner Foundation is a community filled with a spirit of hope, creativity, excellence and pride.
