Grantmaking is at the heart of The Community Foundation’s work.
With deep roots in our community and expertise in effective philanthropy, we are positioned to assess community needs and opportunities and support quality programs providing solutions. We award grants annually to nonprofits for a broad array of charitable purposes in areas such as education, the environment, the arts, health, and social services.
Our discretionary grants are awarded to respond to new programs, emerging needs and innovative services for the benefit of our community. Applications for discretionary grants are accepted annually from tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations serving Middle Tennessee. We are particularly interested in grant proposals addressing currently unmet community needs and providing long-term solutions.
The Board of The Community Foundation has the authority to award discretionary grants and may be aided in its efforts by Fund Advisory Committees constituted for that purpose.
