Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee Issues RFP for Discretionary Grant Program

The Community Foundation  of Middle Tennessee exists to promote and facilitate giving in the forty counties of Middle Tennessee and beyond. It does this by accepting gifts of any size from anyone at any time and by empowering individuals, families, companies, nonprofits, and communities to respond to needs and opportunities that matter. The foundation works with people who have great hearts, regardless of whether they have great wealth, to craft solutions that reflect their intentions and goals.

To that end, the foundation has issued a Request for Proposals for nonprofit organizations working to improve the well-being of residents of Middle Tennessee. Grants will be awarded to nonprofit organizations in the region serving a wide range of causes, including animal welfare, arts and humanities, conservation and preservation, the environment, education, employment and training, health and human services, housing, and economic and community development.

To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit organization in the following Tennessee counties: Bedford, Cannon, Cheatham, Clay, Coffee, Cumberland, Davidson, DeKalb, Dickson, Fentress, Franklin, Giles, Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Jackson, Lawrence, Lewis, Lincoln, Macon, Marshall, Maury, Montgomery, Moore, Overton, Perry, Pickett, Putnam, Robertson, Rutherford, Smith, Stewart, Sumner, Trousdale, Van Buren, Warren, Wayne, White, Williamson, and Wilson.
