Established in 2017

The Community Foundation of Rutherford County is like a savings account for the community – the principal remains intact, and a portion of its earnings are used to make grants helping those in need. As a vehicle for civic-minded individuals, families and companies, The Foundation connects people with the causes and organizations about which they care most, improving Rutherford County, now and forever.

We will help support local nonprofits to address unmet needs of the community. Grants will be awarded on an annual cycle. All local 501c3 agencies and public institutions are eligible to apply. Nonprofits must be profiled in GivingMatters.com to be eligible. A local grant committee reviews Rutherford County-based applications and determines allocations to qualified nonprofit partners.
