You want to support the causes closest to your heart.
On Dec. 5, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee will honor a man whose fingerprints can be found on almost every major civic effort in our community - Francis S. Guess.
From humble beginnings, Guess put his stamp on Middle Tennessee through his civic leadership, public service, business acumen and philanthropic efforts.
With gratitude for his dedication to our community, we invite you to join The Community Foundation as we honor Francis S. Guess with the 20th annual Joe Kraft Humanitarian Award.
In light of the devastating typhoon that tore through the Philippines and Southeast Asia, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has created The Philippines Typhoon Fund to support the ongoing disaster relief efforts. Grants from the Fund will be made to nonprofits addressing needs in the impacted area.
On Friday, November 8, Typhoon Haiyan hit the eastern seaboard of the Philippines and barreled across its central islands, packing winds of 147 mph that gusted to 170 mph, and a storm surge of 20 feet. Hundreds of thousands of people are displaced from their homes.
From the historic Middle Tennessee floods, the tornadoes that devastated Oklahoma, and the catastrophic earthquakes in Japan and resulting tsunamis, The Community Foundation has responded to disasters around the world and here at home.
The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s Annual Report salutes the thousands of Middle Tennesseans who work with us to have an impact on the community they love and choose to call home.
We'd like to thank those who helped: Courier Printing, photographer Anthony Scarlati for donating some of his time to capture the beautiful images, and our internal team for putting it together.
We invite you to join our work to make this community stronger by telling us your goals and letting us increase your ability to make a difference
