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 $1.79 million in grants to 280 nonprofit organizations as part of The Foundation’s annual discretionary grantmaking process.  WCTE Upper Cumberland PBS has received a $2153 grant to provide after-school education outreach to children living in Highlands Residential Services (public housing) in Putnam County.  Using quality PBS Kids educational resources and a transmedia approach to learning, WCTE Education staff will reach children with this trusted content that focuses on math, science, and literacy.

“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.  More information on the grant process is online at cfmt.org/request/grants/.  For more information on WCTE Education projects, visit wcte.org/education.
