Foundations & Corporate Support
Contributions through sponsorships and foundation grants, employee matching gifts, and in-kind donations, enables The Peace Studio to carry out its programs most effectively each year.
By contributing to The Peace Studio, our foundation and corporate partners receive:
- Prominent visibility as one of our key funding partners on all TPS promotional materials distributed nationally and internationally
- Opportunities for brand visibility on PBS, NowThis, and across many other media platforms where The Peace Studio regularly works
- Invitations to attend special VIP events with exciting guests like Wynton Marsalis, Dr. Bernice King, and Nobel Peace Prize winner Jody Williams
- A chance to drive tremendous impact around the artists and journalists that we serve each year

The Peace Studio is indebted to Bob and Christine Stiller for their transformational $650,000 pledge in support of our fast-growing organization in May 2021.
Over the next three years, the Stiller family will be making the following possible:
- They will underwrite the creation of a new Images and Voices of Hope Restorative Narrative Prize, which will be given annually to one deserving journalist or media-maker each year whose body of work and personal vocation is contributing to a discourse of resilience and possibility instead of perpetuating trauma. The inaugural award will be presented at our 2022 Summit.
- They will support the creation of a new Peace Studio Curriculum to provide new tools to our community of artists and journalists working to depolarize society. The module-based curriculum will include units on: 1) Developing A Reflective Practice and Finding Peace Within, (2) Peacebuilding Tools for Artists and Journalists, (3) Engaging in Appreciative Inquires, (4) Telling Restorative Narratives and (5) The Artist or Journalist as Citizen.
- They will support the creation of a Guide on Restorative Narrative for Educators and Newsroom Editors.
- They will fund two classes of Artist and Journalist Bridge-Building Fellowships, which launch Summer 2022.
- And finally, with their help, we will create The Stiller Family Fund for Media and Journalism Early Childhood Education Initiatives in 2023. This new drawdown fund will allow The Peace Studio the opportunity to award project-based support to former fellows and grantees to take strengths-based performances and stories, Appreciative Inquiry ‘Discovery’ workshops, and more into local elementary and middle school classrooms over the next 5 years.
