Nineteen arts nonprofits — from theaters to dance companies to art museums — will soon receive grants of $10,000 to $25,000 from New York-based WarnerMedia, which includes HBO, Turner and Warner Bros., and is owned by AT&T.

The Covid-19 Relief Fund, as it’s called, will provide a total of $250,000 to small- and medium-size arts and culture institutions in Atlanta, giving them resources to elevate storytelling and continue creating in the midst of unknown futures. In addition to its Covid-19 relief, WarnerMedia and AT&T have pledged to commit about $750,000 in general support to Atlanta artistic and cultural institutions throughout 2020.

“We believe storytelling is a vehicle for impact and social change,” WarnerMedia senior vice president Dennis Williams said in a press release. In total this year, the conglomerate is investing more than $100 million in Atlanta’s storytellers, he said.

Most of the nonprofits receiving grants shuttered sometime in March. Since then, they’ve been sharing their work via free and/or paid online programming that ranges from entertainment to education to virtual museum tours and more.

Recipients of the Covid-19 Relief Fund grants, in alphabetical order, are:
