ABOUT THE SPORTS FUND

The Sports Fund, an initiative of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a charitable effort dedicated to helping ensure Middle Tennessee area children have access to the opportunities sports and team membership provide – ultimately, helping them succeed in school and in life.

Sports and team membership provide:

• A sense of belonging, self-esteem, hope, and the inspiration of coaches
• A source of activity, particularly in those critical after-school hours
• A "hook" to attract kids to nonprofit programs also offering tutoring

As a permanent endowed source of funding, The Sports Fund will distribute grant funds to nonprofits and community programs in Middle Tennessee that work proactively to prevent a range of issues facing our children: childhood obesity, gang membership, teen pregnancy, high school dropout rates, and more.
