Established in 2007

Having successfully merged her vocation and her avocation, philanthropist Joan Hornig was introduced to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee when she was the keynote speaker at the 2007 Power of the Purse Luncheon benefiting The Women’s Fund. On that occasion, she shared the story of following her dream to create beautiful jewelry and use the sales thereof to generate philanthropic dollars. One hundred percent of Joan’s profits on her jewelry sales are channeled through the Joan B Hornig Foundation to reach a host of nonprofit organizations, each selected by her customers. To commemorate the occasion of her address to many of the philanthropists of Middle Tennessee, her family created this Unrestricted Fund in her name.
