Grant Awarded to Nashville Symphony by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee
The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the 40 Middle Tennessee counties it serves, announced $2,246,667 in grants to 350 nonprofit organizations as part of the 2020 annual grant-making process.
As part of the grants awarded, the Nashville Symphony received a $12,100 grant to provide free, high-quality instrument instruction and music education experiences to 2,244 students in Nashville during 2021.
“The work of our nonprofit partners has never been more important as we watch needs emerge and evolve in this community,” said Ellen Lehman, president of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. “The Community Foundation is honored to connect generosity with need through these annual grants and other avenues throughout the year, but we couldn’t have an impact without the array of quality nonprofits offering solutions to our community’s needs and vital services to our neighbors.”
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.
