About The Foundation

Connecting Generosity With Need® for 25 Years
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 total includes funds raised and prize totals, but prize awarding is still in process.
