The Frist Foundation

Building A Better Nashville

At The Frist Foundation, our mission is to make the lives of our fellow Nashvillians just a little bit better. For more than 40 years, we’ve been dedicated to sustaining and improving the quality of life in Nashville, Tennessee, investing in nonprofit organizations that serve the broader community of Davidson County. We take special interest in agencies that serve communities facing challenges in Nashville and those doing collaborative community work.

In the words of founder

Dr. Tommy Frist, Jr.

What we want is to make people’s lives just a little bit better.
