In 2003, civic leaders and forward-thinking residents of Christian, Todd, and Trigg Counties approached the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee with the hope of building a “charitable savings account” to benefit nonprofits in these counties and develop effective solutions to improving their community. After some discussion, the board of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee agreed to extend its boundaries to take these three southern Kentucky counties “under its wing.” In this cooperative venture, The Community Foundation of Christian, Todd, and Trigg Counties is an affiliate fund of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
The first grants made through The Community Foundation of Christian, Todd, and Trigg Counties helped emergency responders who coordinated the volunteers and counseled the victims of the tornadoes that ripped through Christian County in 2006.
