 Over a decade ago, community leaders in Middle Tennessee saw a need for an inventory of community needs and resources. While donors were inundated with requests for contributions, they weren’t always confident about how their philanthropic dollars were being put to use. Local philanthropists envisioned a tool that would empower givers to understand the needs of the local nonprofit community, and to feel confident in their philanthropic investments.

Today, hosts over 1,700 profiles of Middle Tennessee nonprofits which contain detailed information on organizations’ history, programs, governance, and finances – all FREE to both nonprofits and users! furthers The Community Foundation’s work of “connecting generosity with need” by raising the level of local nonprofit transparency, making comprehensive information available to the public in a searchable database, and identifying emerging needs.
