Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee awards grant to Motlow College Foundation

LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, a charitable organization dedicated to enriching the quality of life in the 40 Middle Tennessee counties it serves, recently announced $2,802,040 in grants to 432 nonprofit organizations including Motlow as part of the 2022 annual grantmaking process.

Motlow College Foundation has received a $4,500 grant which will be utilized for the Foundation’s Emergency Assistance Fund. The fund provides financial assistance to eligible students at Motlow State Community College who need help with educational expenses.

“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 nonprofit organizations addressing community needs and benefiting the well-being of citizens through valuable programs and innovative services.
