About the Josh Turner Fund for the Arts:

Growing up in Hannah, South Carolina, Josh Turner had little access to music or musical education through the public school system. Josh made it because of the encouragement of a teacher who recognized his potential and who steered him toward Belmont's music program when he was considering colleges. The Fund that Josh and his wife, Jennifer, have established within The Community Foundation is dedicated to enriching his hometown's public schools and their capacity to encourage kids a lot like him to pursue their artistic dreams.
