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. As an endowed fund, the Fund for Chattanooga generates continuous growth for the benefit of the community. The Fund for Chattanooga is the primary fund from which the foundation distributes grants. It is governed by a volunteer committee comprised of committed community members who oversee the grantmaking process.
