We’re working to make Tallahassee great!
Tallahassee Media Group believes in our community. We work hard to support local nonprofit organizations serving our community. Each year, we donate thousands of dollars to area organizations and contribute significant in-kind support to a broad base of organizations serving the area. Below is a list of just a few of the many charitable initiatives that we work on each year.
Gannett Foundation: A philanthropic foundation sponsored by Gannett. The Gannett Foundation supports nonprofit activities in Tallahassee and other Gannett influenced communities. In 2012, the Gannett Foundation made grants and matched employee donations to nonprofits for a total of $6.9 million.
Make a Difference Day: Millions of people and many businesses come together on the fourth Saturday in October to participate in Make A Difference Day. Sponsored by Gannett’s USA WEEKEND, it is the largest national day of helping others, and is supported by Tallahassee Media Group.
Move Tallahassee: A mission to inspire healthy and active lifestyles within our local community. Tallahassee Democrat and Tallahassee Media Group both strongly support and sponsor this “move”ment.
Blanket Day: In the winter months, even Tallahassee gets cold. Our annual blanket drive, which started in 1991, serves to help keep members of our local community warm.
Go Pink Day: Tallahassee is a strong supporter of Breast Cancer Awareness and has teamed up with Joanna Francis Living Well Foundation to raise money to support families battling breast cancer. Tallahassee Democrat started a “Go Pink” day, in which local residents and businesses proudly wear pink in support of breast cancer awareness and prevention. In 2013, we also hosted our first ever Go Pink 5k & Fun Run, which brought the community together and raised money for the Living Well Foundation.
