On the horizon …
Give Black, Give Back Initiative


Together, we will continue to build onto the legacy of African Americans giving back to our community.

There are more than 40 funds at The Community Foundation established by African American philanthropists and/or to support the African American community. These funds are only part of the story of African American generosity in Middle Tennessee.

The Give Black, Give Back Initiative will work to share the full story.

“Give Black, Give Back, in partnership with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is an opportunity to share the legacy of black philanthropists, provide support to the more than 40 African American funds at CFMT, and showcase the collective wealth in the community,” says Kia Jarmon, co-founder of Give Black, Give Back.
