Who’d a thunk it …

While this Annual Report to you should be fully laser-locked on the work and accomplishments of 2019 — a year during which we were often reminded that Giving Always Matters — I simply cannot ignore the tumultuous series of events that have taken place in the months of 2020.

In this space, we’ve dealt with disasters that have weighed on everyone’s mind, and continue to do so. In fact, we got hit by a one-two-three punch from the storms, the sickness and the sadness.

We have learned to shelter in place, to stay safe, to stay strong, to stay sane. But even in the midst of this physical and mental pain, we are reminded once again that giving, indeed, always matters.

Even in the worst of times, somehow in this community the good comes out, and the generosity of our neighbors helps lighten the burden of many.

Whether it’s a dollar or some coins you found in the couch, no matter if you have great wealth or a great heart, we thank you for being part of connecting generosity with need and acknowledging that Giving Always Matters.

Ellen Lehman, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee
