Established in 2010


For 30 years, Davis-Kidd Booksellers was a home to people in Nashville who loved not only books, but also learning and sharing ideas. At the closing of this beloved community institution, its founders, Karen Davis and Thelma Kidd, created a way to ensure its spirit lives on. Through this Fund, there will always be charitable resources available to support nonprofit programs in Middle Tennessee dedicated to instilling a love of learning and reading in our community. This Fund carries on the memory of the bookstore which instilled that same love in so many of us.
