Norris Area Community Foundation

An affiliate fund of East Tennessee Foundation

Norris Area Community Foundation believes in the importance of supporting one’s own community and East Tennessee Foundation stands ready to facilitate this by the launch of “Give Where You Live Norris Area” which is committed to the enhancement and welfare of the Norris area, including Andersonville, Bethel, and Fairview in Anderson County, Tennessee.  The “Give Where You Live” platform for giving provides multiple options for supporting current and future Norris Area needs.

You may currently reside in the Norris area, may have been born there, spent your childhood or earlier years there, or this may be the community in which you desire to live in the future. Whatever your relationship with these communities, your interest and support in this two-fold campaign is greatly needed and appreciated.

We can accept gifts of many assets of value and encourage you to contact us at any time to discuss how your legacy gift can enhance the Norris Area for generations to come. Our team of professionals stands ready to meet with you and discuss how to make this a reality!
