The Community Foundation Scholarships.
Stacy London will address the 16th annual Power of the Purse® Luncheon on Thursday, April 10, 2014, at Nashville’s Music City Center.
Stacy London is one of America’s premier style experts, helping women to boost their confidence by celebrating their personal style. She joined TLC in 2002 as one of the original hosts of the wildly popular “What Not to Wear.”
Each year, The Power of the Purse® luncheon attracts prominent women to Middle Tennessee to celebrate women and giving in the community. The event includes a silent auction of more than 50 donated purses, the luncheon and keynote address. Proceeds support The Women’s Fund and its annual grantmaking to local nonprofits.
The Community Foundation administers more than 70 scholarship funds through an open application process. Some scholarships help students from a particular school or area; others provide financial assistance to those pursuing a specific field of study; still others assist students most in need.
Students apply and, if eligible, can be awarded scholarships from one or more of these unique funds established by a variety of donors.
Nonprofits play an essential role across the region – in health, arts, environment, education and social services. In today’s economic environment, these organizations need to accomplish much more with much less.
To celebrate Middle Tennessee’s spirit of generosity and “payback” the work of nonprofits, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee came up with something “big.”
The Big Payback, presented by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a region-wide, 24-hour online giving event created to help nonprofits raise funds vital to continue their work, which directly improves the community around them.
From 6 a.m. on May 6 until 6 a.m. on May 7, anyone can visit TheBigPayback.org and make donations to their choice of participating nonprofits, including schools and churches, that serve the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee.
