Established in 2001

Fanny May Hite bequeathed a portion of her estate to The Community Foundation for the creation of a Fund in her memory. At her death in 2000, this money was transferred to The Foundation so that causes about which she cared could continue to receive support. Fanny May, who was educated at Vanderbilt University, spent her 98 years living in Boston and Nashville. She performed numerous volunteer jobs to help the community, and among her favorite charities were Senior Citizens, Inc. and the Arthritis Association.
