The Turner Foundation was established in 2001 as part of the estate plan of local businessman and philanthropist Harry M. Turner.

This charitable foundation was created to be both a platform and a catalyst for the improvement of life in Springfield and Clark County through direct investments in 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.
