Foundation grants are reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors, which consists of individuals from the Nashville community and team representatives. All applicants are notified in early April via email and funding is distributed by early May. For this reason, we do not accept requests for funding projects in April or May of that year. It is however acceptable to request funding for a project in April or May of the following year. If funding needs change after grant is approved, please contact us. All grant recipients must submit a midyear and final report by the preset deadline.
