Who We Are

A trusted steward of investments and the third largest public foundation by asset size in Tennessee

In 1963, the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga was founded to serve as the Chattanooga area’s public charitable foundation that could support the community’s pressing needs and address its challenges. We support the philanthropic goals of our donors and support the non-profits that are catalysts for change and good in our community.

We are a trusted steward of investments and the third largest public foundation by asset size in Tennessee, with over $153 million under management.

Together with hundreds of local non-profit partners, we have prioritized impact and work with donors to plan gifts that are aligned with their personal financial goals and are truly meaningful.

Here, thoughtful leadership and guidance inform impactful giving that will leave a lasting legacy for generations to come.
