Established in 2016

The Kitty and Pat Emery Fund for Nashville, an Unrestricted Fund within The Community Foundation, was established on November 22, 2016. It happened the day after their 19th wedding anniversary and in anticipation of Kitty’s passing as a result of the cancer she has fought and survived for many months.

It stemmed, however, from a happier place, the deep and abiding love Kitty and Pat have had for each other and for their community. The goal of the Fund is to ensure that The Community Foundation has resources to address the needs of the community they chose to call home as those needs emerge and evolve. The Fund will be Nashville-centric, but the causes to which the money may be applied are unlimited because Kitty and Pat believe Nashville’s opportunities to be unlimited as well.
