Atlanta Community News - CBS46 News

CBS46 is Working For A Better Atlanta to bring meaningful and sustainable differences to our community. We believe in the power of partnerships. Whether it’s partnering with charity organizations or encouraging employee engagement, our goal is to build strong and vibrant communities. At CBS46, we are striving to be a conduit for change through innovative programming and proactive visibility.

We are proud to be a part of the Atlanta community. We are committed to engaging, showcasing and being an active participant in the communities our employees and audiences call home. We will work with community partners, large and small, to ensure that we fulfill our responsibility as both a good neighbor and corporate citizen.

In everything we do, we have high expectations that our people and partners will together make a meaningful and sustainable difference in our communities. When deciding which causes to support, we take into account many variables. This year, CBS46 will focus the majority of its support in four areas where we can best apply our knowledge, expertise and resources:

Eye on Your Money
We are the money station. We have a commitment to causes and programming that involve consumer saving, literacy and advocacy. We are the money station…It is the cornerstone of all we do.

Eye on Better Health
We believe our first wealth is health. We want to help individuals and their communities improve their health and wellbeing. We support causes with creative programming for our communities’ most pressing healthcare challenges that have the potential to improve access, care or costs.

Eye on Arts & Culture
We believe that arts, entertainment and culture are essential to quality of life and can contribute to positive and enduring economic, social and cultural change in communities. Our emphasis is on opportunities that create access for all, helping community organizations build audiences and market their programming and promote the entertainment and culture scene within our communities.

Eye on Education
We believe in assisting in the education of the next generation. Our focus in education K-12 is centrally focused around the fields that embody the workforce within our organization, specifically in journalism and television broadcast. We will also support causes that can assist in improving the low graduation rate in our local area school systems.

Partnering in our community to multiply the impact of local efforts

CBS46 is proud to be a part of the Atlanta community and work with organizations large and small that call Atlanta home. Through our CBS46 Cares program, we partner with nonprofits, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and community-based organizations that reflect our mission, vision and values. On occasion we will partner with organizations outside our community areas of focus when our employees are passionately involved in highly creative programming or opportunities that scale the impact of support for nonprofits.

We enjoy fulfilling our responsibility as a good neighbor and serving as a catalyst for positive change through our partnerships. At CBS46, we believe amazing things can happen when people connect.
