Philanthropy through a community foundation like ETF allows your gift to have a greater cumulative impact. Together we can make lives stronger for this extraordinary region we call home. Join us as we reimagine giving, dedicated to a vision of thriving communities for all. 

The donations and gifts we receive come from people who want to impact East Tennessee in some way – sometimes during their lifetimes, sometimes as a legacy that continues long after they have left us physically. Their generosity, and vision for community change and possibility, enables us to award scholarships, support nonprofit organizations, and mobilize efforts where they’re needed the most.

As you consider your own philanthropic intentions and desired outcomes, ETF can help you navigate what can sometimes feel like a complicated process. We have built the expertise, trust, accountability, and relationships that create measurable outcomes and donor satisfaction.
