Grant Awarded to Homework Hotline by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee

NASHVILLE, Tenn. –  (December 2017) The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the 40 Middle Tennessee counties it serves, announces more than $2 million in grants to 346 nonprofit organizations as part of the 2017 annual discretionary grant making process.

Homework Hotline has received a $10,000 grant to provide 2,000 free one-on-one literacy and math tutoring sessions to 750 students and parents from 45 partnering TN counties.

“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.
