Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants of up to $15,000 to Tennessee nonprofit organizations, units of government, and educational institutions in eligible locations to prevent traumatic youth experiences. Priority will be given to grassroots nonprofit organizations. Applicants must be located in and serve residents of East Tennessee Foundation’s 25-county service area, including Anderson, Blount, Campbell, Carter, Claiborne, Cocke, Grainger, Greene, Hamblen, Hancock, Hawkins, Jefferson, Johnson, Knox, Loudon, McMinn, Monroe, Morgan, Roane, Scott, Sevier, Sullivan, Unicoi, Union, and Washington Counties.

In 2021, East Tennessee Foundation is going to focus its Youth Endowment grantmaking on supporting programs that help prevent or mitigate Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the root causes of these troubling, destructive, and dangerous issues facing our youth. ACEs are defined as stressful and traumatic events in a child’s life such as incidents of abuse and neglect, living in a household with addictive behaviors, and witnessing or experiencing domestic violence. Not only have these traumatic events worsened because of the pandemic, but they have become disproportionately more severe for minority youth and other vulnerable populations.
