The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee



The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee brings good people and good causes together to help ensure both the excellent stewardship of donor funds and the wise investment of grants in the 40 counties of Middle Tennessee that we serve.


The Community Foundation puts the joy back in giving by making it comfortable, convenient and cost-effective to give, and by harnessing the flexibility available through The Foundation to create a giving vehicle best suited to a donor’s goals.

Increasing the Diversity of Social Entrepreneurs in the U.S.


Increasing the diversity of social entrepreneurs in the U.S.

One of the most significant challenges to social entrepreneurship and innovation is ensuring a diversity of approaches and participants in the movement. To truly deliver meaningful social change the leaders of the effort must share perspectives of the challenges faced by communities across the U.S. that can most appropriately come from members of those communities.
