Your mission, supported and shared.

The Foundation created the Fund for Chattanooga grants process to encourage, inspire, and improve lives in the community of Greater Chattanooga. Through innovative and effective grant making, we’re building a lasting foundation of community support that makes our city and our world a better place to live.
  • The Fund for Chattanooga

    Chattanooga is always evolving and so too are the needs of our city. This is why the Fund for Chattanooga was established: to serve our community, year after year, even as the community changes. Since 1963, thousands of gifts have been pooled together to provide a permanent resource for Chattanooga.

    The Fund for Chattanooga is the primary fund from which the foundation distributes grants.  A volunteer committee, comprised of community members, governs and oversees the grantmaking process.

  • Fiscal Sponsorship

    A Fiscal Sponsorship (Project Fund) allows an organization to operate as a component fund under the umbrella of the Community Foundation. This program is intended to help build capacity and to assist the organizations as they pursue sustainability and eventually obtain their own non-profit status.
