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.

We are pleased to announce grants to 121 Tennessee organizations as part of a one-time Serving Tennessee’s Seniors grant opportunity. Funding of Serving Tennessee’s Seniors was provided by the Chancery Court and administered by The Community Foundation through the settlement of a lawsuit initiated by Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper.
