Established in 2018


The Be A Craig Fund was established by Walker Hayes as a tribute to a man named Craig who gave the Hayes’ family a van when they were struggling. His kindness meant that the family would have a vehicle big enough for all of the Hayes children to have a seat belt.

In keeping with the sentiment of paying it forward, and through gifts to support  nonprofits that empower others to make the path easier, Walker wants to encourage individuals to seek out opportunities to help others.


Gifts to the Be A Craig Fund are tax-deductible. Your credit card statement will read, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
