Established in 1992

Jane and Dick Eskind taught their children about the importance of philanthropy by example. To help instill those same values in their five grandchildren, they set up a Fund for each grandchild, in addition to their own Fund, to educate the next generation of the family about philanthropy and the needs of the Middle Tennessee community. Until the grandchildren reach a certain age, their parents or guardians will help them submit recommendations for charitable grants. Afterward, each child will be able to make his or her own requests regarding grant distributions from these charitable nest eggs.
