About The Foundation

Connecting Generosity With Need® since 1991
The Community Foundation exists to promote and facilitate giving in the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee and beyond. We do this by accepting gifts of any size from anyone at any time and by empowering individuals, families, companies, nonprofits, and communities to respond to needs and opportunities that matter.



Your Story Is Our Story

Every day, people choose The Community Foundation to make an impact in our community. Because of their generosity, we are able to address the changing needs of Middle Tennessee, ensuring its future as a great place to call home.

Your stories of giving make us who we are, and we hope that by telling them, we inspire others to realize their charitable dreams. We invite you to share a personal story of your own.

The Big Payback Giving Day

The 24-Hour Online Giving Event Tops $29M In Donations During Its 9-Year History

This spring, CFMT will launch a comprehensive new strategic plan that includes evaluating the overall impact of our community-based programs like The Big Payback. Therefore, we have decided to postpone the 2023 event until we’ve heard from our community and been able to incorporate feedback that will guide its purpose and strategy in the future.
