The Maury Regional Health Care Foundation has received a $4,100 grant from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Designated to the Women’s Center Fund, this grant will assist in providing free mammograms, camisoles, wigs, lymphedema garments and more to women who qualify.
“This is the ninth year that the Foundation has received funds from the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee,” said Executive Director Joe Kilgore. “We are grateful for their support of our mission to serve women in our region facing financial challenges, especially those with a breast cancer diagnosis. This fund enables us to relieve some of the burden these women face during a very difficult time.”
The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the 40 Middle Tennessee counties it serves, awarded $2,379,000 in grants to 365 nonprofit organizations as part of the 2019 annual grant-making process.
“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.
