Established 2017
The Community Foundation of Rutherford County promotes the betterment of Rutherford County and provides a way for citizens to make lasting gifts for the improvement and benefit of future generations.  Our mission is to assist Rutherford County nonprofit organizations that help build and benefit the community.

The Community Foundation of Rutherford County chose to become an Affiliate Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, recognizing the leadership and infrastructure it provides. Affiliate Funds are designated to benefit a particular geographic area, be it a county, a community, or a region. The affiliate is overseen by a committee of local leaders, and The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee handles administrative operations.


The Community Foundation of Rutherford County is like a savings account for the community – the principal remains intact, and a portion of its earnings are used to make grants helping those in need. As a vehicle for civic-minded individuals, families and companies, The Foundation connects people with the causes and organizations about which they care most, improving Rutherford County, now and forever.

We will help support local nonprofits to address unmet needs of the community. Grants will be awarded on an annual cycle. All local 501c3 agencies and public institutions are eligible to apply. Nonprofits must be profiled in to be eligible. A local grant committee reviews Rutherford County-based applications and determines allocations to qualified nonprofit partners.
