Established in 2008

The Community Foundation has activated its Tennessee Emergency Response Fund in response to recent flooding in Middle Tennessee. Grants from this fund will be made to nonprofits supporting relief and restoration in areas of Middle Tennessee affected by the severe weather and floods.

The size and scope and circumstance of every disaster is different. The Tennessee Emergency Response Fund was created in 2008 so that our community will be prepared to handle a disaster. Through this Fund, The Community Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations providing vital services. Our work will, we know, free nonprofits up to concentrate on delivering those vital services while we “connect generosity with need” and our community sets out to rebuild lives.


Your tax-deductible gift will be reflected on your credit card statement as The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.
