Grants typically ranging from $2,500 to $5,000 to Tennessee nonprofit organizations for operating and capital support, programs, or projects that benefit the Nashville area. Funding is intended for the focus areas of health, human services, education, civic activities, and the arts. Priority consideration is also given to organizations that have long-standing relationships with the founders or the Phillips Foundation leadership.

Types of Support

Sustaining Operating
Support for selected organizations contributing significantly to the Nashville area. Grants are awarded one year at a time and are subject to review on an annual basis.

Project and Program
Funding for specific projects, equipment or programs incorporating well-defined objectives and timetables and promising broad benefit. They are usually awarded for a maximum term of one year, with evaluation required at the end of the grant period.

Capital
Support for major capital projects of organizations with strong records of community service. They must provide a credible fund-raising plan, as well as demonstrate the capacity to maintain buildings and equipment once they are in place. The maximum term is usually five years.

Director Designated
Members of the Committee on Beneficiaries can elect to direct a certain amount of grant funding to eligible nonprofit organizations of their choosing. While these grants may not reflect the overall funding priorities of the Foundation, they do reflect the diverse interests of the committee members. Since these grants are initiated internally, uninvited proposals will not be considered.
