hree people from different perspectives, yearning to have an impact, to make a difference.
In this annual report we salute the thousands of Middle Tennesseans who work with The Community Foundation to have an impact on the community they love and choose to call home. Their stories are as inspirational as the quotes above ... even though they may not all have great wealth, they each have great hearts. We want to help you … as well as the neighbors whose stories fill these pages.
So many of them have come to us time and time again when new charitable interests emerge or new issues evolve. We help them figure out how best to give and, in some cases, to whom. But mostly we listen ... In essence, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee provides customized giving. Why? Because we know that giving matters and gifts of every size, shape and form matter. We listen to what you want to do and then do everything possible to help you achieve your goals. Unlike most charities, for us it’s about YOUR vision, YOUR mission, and YOUR intent, not about us. Please call us 615-321-4939. Let us know how we can help you help others ... After all ...

rief and healing take many forms. When nine-year-old Rachel lost her father, Allen, in an accident in 2012, random acts of kindness helped her realize she was loved. These gestures let her know her feelings were noticed.
The Dogwood Project is on a mission to help children like Rachel who have lost a close relative as they begin to grieve. Stephen Schlapman, Allen’s brother and also Rachel’s uncle, turned to The Community Foundation to launch The Dogwood Project, named for a tree Allen loved. The day before the accident, Allen had stood in his brother’s yard and talked at length about how he loved these trees. Through The Dogwood Fund, Allen’s family will send children a living memorial in honor of their loved one – a small tree or perennial flower to plant with an adult, along with a teddy bear for comfort. This small gesture is a reminder of love and hope, much like Rachel received, to help other children experiencing loss.

ne hundred years ago, mass production was a revolution. Now, it’s ubiquitous. In today’s era of convenience, products made by hand feel almost old-world.
Phillip Nappi’s passion to revive those standards of yesteryear, and create the perfect boot, made to the highest quality standards, drove him to Italy where he could immerse himself in the craft of shoemaking. It was only after he and his family set out on this journey they learned that his grandfather, Peter, was in fact a shoe craftsman who brought his own boot company to America in 1904. After spending time in Italy learning the art, Phillip and his wife, Dana, knew it was their calling to create products that honor Peter and his long-established traditions, passion for life and love for beautiful craftsmanship. Through Peter Nappi, a luxury Italian footwear company based in Nashville, Phillip has reclaimed his grandfather’s legacy. Phillip and Dana’s giving is equally focused on investing in these values. Through their Phillip C. and Dana T. Nappi Advised Fund, they have the flexibility to handcraft their charitable giving and focus on their specific priorities. It’s a charitable legacy they’re making with care, just as Peter would have done.

here are few things more important than the health and well-being of our children.
Today, heavy regulations, loads of administrative paperwork and lack of coordination are fragmenting the child care community. Child care providers find their precious time consumed by files and documents. And parents say navigating the system to find child care openings is cumbersome. Childcare Tennessee, an initiative of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, set out to help fix this broken business model by working with nonprofit child care providers to relieve administrative duties and save money that can be reinvested in the programs. What started out as a group of 12 child care centers has turned into a team – they’ve saved time and money by sharing administrative functions, group purchasing on items like milk and mulch, and streamlining documents. Through ChildcareNashville.com, ChildcareTennessee.com and Cooks Academy, dozens of child care providers are coming together, using innovative ways to improve their programs. The result is more focus on kids while improving child care for everyone involved.

ith nearly 200 years of tradition and a national reputation of academic excellence, Fisk University has developed a strong identity in our community. Along with fostering
great minds, it is home to some of Middle Tennessee’s finest works of art – including the Alfred Stieglitz Collection. The 101 treasures of art comprising the Collection now have a long-term source of designated, endowed funding to protect their display and care. Presented to Nashville’s historic Fisk University in 1949, the collection features an array of modern art with works by Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keefe, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Paul Cezanne. The Fund for the Care of the Alfred Stieglitz Collection at Fisk University was established solely for the purpose of supporting the cost of the display, maintenance, care and protection of the works of art at the Carl Van Vechten Art Gallery at Fisk University, so that many more generations may be introduced to its enlightening riches.

drienne Ames’ intentions are simple. She wants to share what she has with others – not just now, but long after she’s gone.
As Adrienne started estate planning, she knew that creating a legacy would require a trusted partner to carry out her wishes. As a nurse for nearly 40 years, she has close ties to the profession and supports nursing education. Her interests don’t stop there as other things have enriched her life, so she wants to support organizations assisting young women, and caring for natural resources and animals, to name a few priorities. In making a planned gift and thinking of years ahead, Adrienne realizes circumstances change, and organizations meeting specific needs may shift too. She’s attracted to the fact that The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee ensures her charitable dollars will be used wisely toward the causes she identifies now. Adrienne knows The Community Foundation will honor her intentions in perpetuity. Creating her lasting legacy here just made sense.

very day, right in our backyard, women and girls are forced into the human sex trade industry through violence, threats and manipulation.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (T.B.I.) and Vanderbilt Center for Community Studies found that in Lawrence, Davidson, Coffee and Franklin counties over 100 cases of adult sex trafficking occured in 2011. Over two-thirds of the counties in the state reported at least one case of sex trafficking of a minor that same year. Middle Tennessee authorities are seeing an increase in trafficking due, in part, to the large number of interstates that cross the state. The Women’s Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee is raising awareness about this alarming reality. In 2012, The Women’s Fund hosted a public forum on the topic of human trafficking. It also worked in conjunction with T.B.I. and the Tennessee Women’s Funds Alliance to promote a new Tennessee Human Trafficking Resource Hotline. Through these steps, The Women’s Fund is working to improve the lives of women and girls in need throughout Middle Tennessee, and help eradicate human sex trafficking.

his expression is at the heart of MAFIAoZA’s restaurant's "family values" – a philosophy that emanates from the warm, family-friendly establishment, no matter how intimidating
the voice of "The Don" (its occasional spokesperson) may sound on the radio. Since opening its doors in 2003, MAFIAoZA’s Pizzeria and Neighborhood Pub, a New York-style eatery, has become a fixture in Nashville’s 12th South community, thanks to its authentic Italian menu and welcoming, familial ambiance. The reward is strong patron support, allowing owners Lars Kopperud and Mike Dolan to expand to another location over the last few years. To give back to the community that has enabled them to achieve their success, the restaurant’s partners came to The Community Foundation and established the MAFIAoZA’s Godfather Fund. The Fund allows MAFIAoZA’s to support the many community initiatives important to them – investing in keeping this the place we all want to call home.

hrough its commitment to brewing delicious coffee, hard work and community support, Bongo Java has established itself as Nashville’s
coffeehouse. For two decades, people have come to love the aroma of locally roasted beans and freshly baked pastries, walls featuring eclectic art from area artists, and the baristas who are as cool as the espresso is hot. To give back to the community that has given so much to them, owner Bob Bernstein created two company charitable funds at The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee: The Bongo Advised Fund and The Bongo Employee Assistance Fund. Bob is well aware his stores’ patrons – from university students writing papers to business professionals talking shop – and his dedicated employees are equally a part of what’s entrenched Bongo in the community. Through its corporate funds, Bongo Java contributes to education programs in the Nashville area and coffee-growing communities, and also has an employee assistance fund to help their staff who face unforeseen and unpreventable emergencies.

ashion transcends boundaries. An artist – the designer who hems a pencil skirt, the model who sees only tunnel vision on the catwalk, or the photographer who captures the moment –
pushes these boundaries through their creativity and skill. To promote and recognize these artists, the Nashville Fashion Forward Fund supports the next generation of fashion industry professionals with ties to Middle Tennessee through financial awards for professional development or experiential opportunity. Lauren Leonard, designer of her line “Leona,” was the 2012 award recipient. The Fund is providing support for Lauren to travel abroad to an international textile show. The Nashville Fashion Forward Fund ensures that Nashville Fashion Week is not just a signature annual event spotlighting the Music City’s growing fashion industry, but also an ongoing, sustainable focus for philanthropic support.

hen a community faces a crisis, fire fighters, police officers and EMTs are at their best. Shouldering a heavy, dangerous load, the “good guys” rise to the
occasion to protect their neighbors. When one of these heroes is hurt in the line of duty, it can have a devastating effect on their family, including a significant loss of income. To help those first responders when they need it the most, retired Metro Nashville Police Officer Mickey Milam created Help The Good Guys, which provides financial support until they can get back on their feet. To broaden his charitable scope, Milam established Help The Good Guys Charitable Fund through The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The Fund benefits nonprofit organizations that help firefighters and police officers injured in the line of duty and/or other victims of serious or life-threatening injuries such as children who have suffered severe burns.

Grants are awarded annually to Middle Tennessee area nonprofits through a single application process, reviewed by a volunteer committee and The Community Foundation’s Board of Directors. This is a competitive process, for nonprofits that chose to apply.
Unrestricted impact Funds + Field-of-Interest Funds
The largest amount of dollars granted, and often, the largest donations annually, are from our Donor-Advised Funds. Individual organizations cannot apply for these grants.
Designated Funds + Agency Endowment Funds These funds are established to support specific nonprofit organization(s). Grants are made annually to the nonprofit(s) named by the donor. Designated Funds are set up by donors to benefit one or more favorite nonprofits. Agency Endowment Funds are set up by the nonprofit itself to help ensure the future of its work.

Barbara Howard became Mrs. George Burrus on June 8, 1953, the Monday after she graduated from Peabody College. The bride watched her husband, George, graduate from Vanderbilt University College of Medicine in 1955. What soon followed was the beginning of a new family and a lifetime of adventure and service. The young Burrus Family boarded the Queen Elizabeth I in July 1962 to travel to India for five years of medical mission work. Subsequently, the family moved to Africa. This life abroad in service to others serves as touchstone for three generations of family members who recommend grants from the Ellen and Roger Burrus Endowed Advised Fund. Giving is done so in memory of Ellen and Roger Burrus, for whom the Fund is named, and Dr. George Burrus whose charitable nature has been passed down to his children and grandchildren.
The Brad Butkiewicz Memorial Scholarship Brad Butkiewicz was a young man who loved football and H.O.S.A. (Health Occupation Students of America). Tragically, Brad lost his life in June 2004 on his way home from an early morning
football workout program. According to his father, Jim, “He was a simple kid that listened to Mom and Dad and always tried to do the right thing.” Thanks to Brad’s family, friends and community, they established this Fund in honor of Brad to help young people coming up who have a need. The Fund is intended to endow permanently one or more scholarships annually to graduating students of the Stewart County (Tennessee) High School. Consistent with Brad’s legacy, the Donor’s preference is that recipients be involved in football or in the H.O.S.A. program.

Each Fund represents a testament to the power of giving, of people taking action to create and sustain solutions for a better today and tomorrow. These stories illustrate a diverse and growing philanthropic landscape and how many gifts, joined together, make an impact on the needs and opportunities of our community. The Community Foundation is honored to be the steward of these gifts and to leverage our donors’ generosity to achieve maximum impact.
The Unrestricted Impact Endowment Established 1991 Unrestricted Funds are the most flexible and allow The Community Foundation to respond to emerging needs, new programs and innovative solutions that might not be started, or might not continue. Each year, hundreds of nonprofits receive grants from the Unrestricted Impact Endowment Fund to support programs that shed new light on the needs and aspirations of Middle Tennesseans.
Jane and Richard Eskind Endowed Unrestricted Fund Established 2009 As contributors to the original Fund that laid the cornerstone for The Community Foundation’s grantmaking, the Eskinds believe firmly in the vital role a community foundation plays in identifying and supporting critical needs for its community.

Hohanness Unrestricted Fund Established 2009 Adelaide Hohanness, a Gallatin native, was an active member of Westminster Presbyterian Church and an employee with Vanderbilt’s social service department for 20 years.

Noah Liff Unrestricted Fund Established 1993 Noah Liff, quite simply, loved to help people.

But he also was pleased to step in to fulfill an unusual need or to address an emergency situation.

Michael D. and Lisa J. Shmerling Charitable Giving Fund Established 1996 Mike and Lisa Shmerling understand that a board of charitably inclined civic leaders and a professional staff that is in contact with almost 1,700 local nonprofit groups can more effectively identify need — and act quickly to provide support. As a result, Mike and Lisa chose to create this Impact Fund and to ask The Foundation’s board to provide support to programs addressing needs that may have heretofore been left unmet. The Shmerlings have created a mechanism to ensure that, every year hereafter, grants benefiting our community will be made in their name, and someday, in the name of their descendants.
The Tricentennial Fund Established 1996 The essence of an Impact Fund is appreciating that individuals living in a community are the people best equipped to make effective grant decisions. It is also realizing that those of us living now cannot predict the future needs of the community we love. The Tricentennial Fund is an opportunity to invest in these truths. Grants will be made by the board of The Community Foundation to address pressing needs in the future.

Af f il iat e Funds T
he Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee provides philanthropic services to meet needs within our service area in Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky. One way The Foundation achieves this goal is through the Affiliate Fund program.
Affiliate Funds are designated to benefit a particular geographic area, be it a county, a community, or a region. Each affiliate is overseen by a committee of local leaders who is charged with educating their neighbors about creating a “charitable savings account” to benefit the area, and helping to make wise decisions about grant distributions when funds become available. As a component of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, the staff of The Foundation handles administrative details, so expenses are kept to a minimum.
The Community Foundation of Clarksville/Montgomery County Established 2007
The Community Foundation of Christian, Todd and Trigg Counties Established 2003
The Cumberland Plateau Community Foundation Established 1999
In Clarksville and Montgomery County, the future is bright. That’s why Clarksville native and The Community Foundation board member Jack Turner recognized the opportunity to encourage folks to donate money to build a lasting stream of support for its nonprofit organizations. To do so, he spearheaded the creation of The Community Foundation of Clarksville/Montgomery County as a “charitable savings account” for Clarksville, Fort Campbell and Montgomery County, TN. As funds become available, an advisory board of local leaders will determine how best to invest in the quality of life of all the citizens in Montgomery County.
In 2003, The Community Foundation’s board agreed to extend its boundaries to take these three Southern Kentucky counties “under its wing.” The philanthropic angels of Christian, Todd and Trigg counties will be able to 1) educate their friends and neighbors about the ways a community foundation can help provide permanent funding to support local nonprofits, and 2) oversee a grantmaking process when such funds become available. In this way, these individuals most knowledgeable about Christian, Todd and Trigg counties can focus on how to best prepare for the continued prosperity of all who live in the area.
The Cumberland Plateau Community Foundation supports broad philanthropic purposes within the Cumberland Plateau, Tennessee, area. It is the goal of this Fund to ensure that charitable needs and organizations of the Cumberland Plateau are endowed for the benefit of future generations.
The Cheatham County Community Foundation Established 1998
The Community Foundation for Dickson County Established 1999
The Cheatham County Community Foundation is a pool of charitable resources dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the county’s residents, now and always. In 1998, a group of Cheatham County citizens were looking for a way to serve both current and future generations. Acknowledging that education is key to the development of both individuals and the community, they sought to provide scholarships for local residents. Created through affiliation with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, The Cheatham County Community Foundation established a vehicle for providing scholarships. Later, it began providing permanent funding to support local nonprofits addressing unmet needs of the county. The leadership of The Foundation is particularly interested in ideas that will enrich the quality of life for all citizens in Cheatham County.
Over a decade ago, the Leadership Dickson County Alumni Association began investigating the idea of starting a community foundation. As a matter of efficiency and cost-effectiveness, The Community Foundation for Dickson County chose to affiliate with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. This allows them to utilize the services of The Foundation, enabling them to have their own community foundation without duplicating all of the costs and reinventing systems and procedures. At the onset, The Community Foundation for Dickson County selected three categories to address: improved education, invigorated leadership and enhanced quality of life. Now with their foundation in place, the citizens are combining vision with capital, as a foundation for the future.

Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund Established 2002 When Oklahoma City’s Murrah Federal Building was bombed in April 1995, the country had never experienced such a disaster and was unprepared in many ways. Although the first response teams did an excellent job, just how to prepare for long-term needs was a puzzle. Generous people from across the world contributed financially to the cause, but many didn’t know where to send the money, and as a result, more than 80 charities handled donations, creating confusion, duplication of effort and inefficiency. In an effort to be prepared if disaster strikes, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee established this vehicle in 2002, which has since become an integrated part of Nashville’s official disaster manual created by the Office of Emergency Management. The Fund has been designated by the city of Nashville as the central repository for giving at the time of disaster.
Oklahoma Tornado Response Fund Established 2013 In light of the devastating tornadoes that tore through Oklahoma in May 2013, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee created this Fund. After reviewing options for giving, all money raised was distributed to support the Shelter Oklahoma Schools Initiative, which will provide storm shelters in and around Oklahoma schools and communities to help minimize future tornado fatalities like those at Plaza Towers Elementary School where seven children lost their lives.
The River Fund Established 2010 On May 1 and May 2, 2010, the rain came. In the days following, the river rose and the flood grew worse. Shortly thereafter, Garth Brooks
contacted The Community Foundation to say he wanted to help. And help he did: not only the flood survivors of Tennessee but the entire city of Nashville, including the businesses downtown. On December 16 through the 22, 2010, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood and a host of volunteers who rigged, lit, performed and more, made magic happen through nine concerts at Bridgestone Arena which brought in a total of $5 million to create The River Fund. Today, homes and lives across Tennessee have been rebuilt from the flood thanks to this incredible outpouring of support.

John and his extended family and friends raised significant support for the New Orleans Community Foundation.

Those living in Tennessee counties which earn presidentiallydeclared disaster status will be eligible for help.
News that a fellow employee has lost his or her home because of a flood, tornado or other natural disaster is something met with great sympathy. Thousands of Dollar General employees are spread across 35 states, and while many have neighbors, family and friends to offer support, others may be overwhelmed with the financial burden. To lend a helping hand, Cal Turner Sr. established the Turner Family Disaster Relief Fund, which offers one-time financial assistance to Dollar General employees recovering from a recent natural disaster.
Vanguard Health Systems Katrina Fund Established 2005 Vanguard Health Systems Employee Tsunami Relief Fund Established 2005 The Vanguard Health Systems Company responded to the pressing need of disaster victims by establishing these two Funds for their employees to donate to those in need. The company matched dollar for dollar the first $400,000 in contributions and also made its own contribution to these Funds.
The size and scope and circumstance of every disaster is different. The Tennessee Emergency Response Fund has been created so that our community will be prepared to handle a disaster. Through this Fund, The Community Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations providing vital services. Our work will, we know, free nonprofits up to concentrate on delivering vital services while we “connect generosity with need” and our community sets out to rebuild lives.

She got to see her oldest daughter go to college, but not graduate. She turned 46, but not 47-years-old.

Clarise Ann DeQuasie Fund Established 2003 The stereotypical person we presume works in libraries would never ride a motorcycle to work each day or charm her way into an abiding friendship with a celebrity – but Clarise DeQuasie was not easily pigeon-holed. She had a passion for life, for animals, for people in pain, and for Luciano Pavarotti. Clarise became ill and died at the age of 63 in 2001. In her Will, she bequeathed her Pavarotti collection to Vanderbilt, and she established a Fund within The Community Foundation to benefit Alive Hospice and Walden’s Puddle.

Betty Brown Fund to benefit the Nashville Tree Foundation Established 2012 Betty Brown never thought that a communal need or opportunity was someone else’s responsibility. She was one of those invaluable people that wanted to help when she saw a need.

Having seen the good done by the community foundation in Louisville, she helped found our Community Foundation to serve Middle Tennessee.

established a Scholarship Fund at The Community Foundation to support students from primarily rural areas wishing to enter the music business or undertake a career in the arts. “Growing up in rural South Carolina, I attended a small school,” says Turner. “In fact, there were only 75 people in my graduating class. And that translated into ‘not a lot of opportunities’ when it came to music.” The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund supports students planning a career that will introduce them to various opportunities in the music business, from performing, writing, or publishing to managing or producing, or some discipline of the arts, such as graphic design, photography or painting.

It allows donors to make charitable gifts of assets simply and cost-effectively. No matter what type of gift works best — cash, appreciated public or private securities, real estate, personal property, insurance policies, IRAs, interests in trusts, etc. — The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee can help. Many donors find this an ideal way to support their favorite causes.

The disease is progressive, taking something, however small, day by day, week by week, year after year.

Together they have given decades of support to untold numbers of nonprofit organizations. But their greatest gift to Middle Tennessee has been their work to inculcate their five extraordinary children (and 21 grandchildren) with the importance of giving back.

John and Laurian’s whole world began to change when their beautiful daughter, Thisbe, was 17-months-old. Thisbe began suffering from a disease that caused her nerve cells to die, no longer sending messages to the muscles, telling them to move. Thisbe became paralyzed piece by piece and spent the last 18 months of her short life suffering, which she bore with unbelievable grace and fortitude. Her death was caused by the motor neuron disease Brown-Vialetto-Van Laere (BVVL) on April 30th, 2007. Just one month after Thisbe’s death, her healthy, precious brother Noah, just 10-months-old at the time, started showing one of the initial symptoms of BVVL: a droopy eyelid. He too started the degeneration, full of love and purity of spirit. The disease took his life nine months later, on April 9th, 2008. Through a profound brokenness, the Scotts have begun the mission to raise awareness, fund research and provide support to families of all forms of pediatric motor neuron diseases. In this way, they hope to honor the amazing little lives that they were graced with in Thisbe and Noah — and to show that they mattered, not just to their parents, but to the world.

Vaden Family Advised Fund • Est. 2002 Village Hope, Zimbabwe Advised Fund Established 2009 Village Hope, a farm located in troubled Zimbabwe, provides a loving home to AIDS orphans. Education is a top priority and serving others is a way of life. From a simple beginning ... “let’s save a couple of kids” ... this project has grown to include 18 children of various ages in residence. The goal is to make a college education available to each of them. Ensuring these childrens’ future is but one goal, however. Village Hope reaches out into the community, organizing programs that feed lunch to 900 hungry school children while also providing broader community feedings for over 400 people from surrounding villages. Village Hope also supports a “seed to sadza” project that provides seed corn for planting and enough mealy meal to get households by until their crops come in. Most recently, Village Hope conducted its own habitat project called “pass it on,” where they provided animals to neighbors in deep need. Imagine this ... children once homeless living in hope and passing
