The Frist Foundation understands that the COVID-19 outbreak is an exceptional event that will have a profound impact on our community. Coupled with the recent tornado, Nashville’s landscape has changed on a scale that we can’t fully see yet.
We want to be as helpful as possible during the coming weeks and months so that nonprofits can continue to focus on the vital work of supporting the most vulnerable people in our communities. While we understand that it will take time to adjust priorities as the current situation continues to evolve, we are doing the following:
If interested in funding from The Frist Foundation, contact Corinne Bergeron at email@example.com or Pete Bird at firstname.lastname@example.org.
