In the death of Lewis Lavine, we have lost a great friend and an irreplaceable resource for the community-at-large and the Nonprofit community specifically.

His family has asked that gifts in his memory be made to a Fund that continues his work.

Called the Lewis Lavine Strategic Nonprofit Opportunities Fund it will serve as a permanent endowment fund to encourage and support the efforts of nonprofit organizations to achieve efficiency and effectiveness. The Fund’s goal is to help nonprofits rethink “business as usual” and work to reduce duplication of effort and expense, thereby freeing up assets to enhance provision of services to their clients.

Gifts to support this effort, in any size, at any time, from anyone are welcome and fully tax-deductible.

Gifts to the Lewis Lavine Strategic Nonprofit Opportunities Fund are tax-deductible. Your credit card statement will read, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
