The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the 40 counties it serves, announces a $5,000 grant to Cannon County Services and Violence Education (SAVE), as part of The Foundation’s annual grantmaking process.
“The Community Foundation is honored to connect generosity with need through these annual grants and through other avenues throughout the year, but we couldn’t have an impact without the many quality nonprofits offering solutions to our community’s needs and vital services to our neighbors,” said Ellen Lehman, president of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. “Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we are able to fund nonprofit solutions addressing Middle Tennessee’s emerging needs and opportunities.”
Cannon County SAVE received a grant to provide victims legal, emotional, financial and safety support while they become self-sufficient and abuse free.
These contributions are part of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s annual discretionary grantmaking process which, this year alone, has distributed more than $1.24 million to 255 nonprofit organizations throughout 34 Middle Tennessee counties.
The Community Foundation awards discretionary grants annually from its unrestricted and field-of-interest funds, through an open application process, to Middle Tennessee nonprofits organizations addressing community needs and benefiting the well-being of citizens through valuable programs and innovative services.
