While details are still unfolding about the devastation in the aftermath of an earthquake in Haiti, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee is poised to react when disaster strikes here at home or in places around the world. The Foundation has systems to simplify and expedite the process of helping people in need, and our focus during a time of disaster is to connect generosity with need.
Gifts of any size are welcome from those who want to help, and grants from the Haiti Earthquake Response Fund of The Community Foundation will be given to nonprofits and aid groups for immediate response, clean-up, and restoration efforts in the aftermath of the earthquake.
