The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee will honor Jack B. Turner as recipient of the 23rd Annual Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award on Tuesday, Oct. 25 inside Music City Center's Davidson Ballroom.

A philanthropist and visionary, Jack has dedicated himself to a broad range of charitable causes throughout Middle Tennessee and beyond. He has done so the hard way: by constantly working to strengthen civic institutions, individually and collectively, and by persistently creating constructive conversation.

Jack’s commitment to community service has extended from Austin Peay State University, near where he grew up, to the U.S. Army’s famed 101st Airborne Division in nearby Fort Campbell, to cities and counties across Middle Tennessee. His leadership has fostered the creation of the Ajax Turner Senior Citizens Center, the Fort Campbell Historical Foundation, Leadership Clarksville, and Leadership Middle Tennessee, to name just a few.

A key figure in the creation of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and a nationally recognized estate planner, he has helped scores of others find their own singular ability to make charitable gifts that matter to them and to others. His authenticity and acumen have made Jack B. Turner & Associates a trusted resource for generations of Tennesseans and a blessing to the many charitable recipients of his clients’ generosity. His exceptional advocacy earned him membership in the Presidencies of the Million Dollar Round Table and the Association for Advanced Life Underwriting.

The Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award was created to perpetuate the memory of a remarkable person who led our community by strength of character and unwavering integrity. The award is given annually to individuals who, like Joe, have made life better for others through hard work, bold dedication to service and strong faith in the human spirit.
