Leading with Love


I can hardly believe another year has come and gone. It feels like only yesterday we were sending out our 2017 annual report. Yet, here we find ourselves again, reflecting on another year and celebrating the many changes and wonderful additions it brought.

I hope you’ll review our 2018 Annual Report which recaps the amazing work accomplished in our community over the past year.

From investing in innovative work-based learning programs that provide opportunities for economic mobility to our work to improve educational outcomes for every student, we are leading with love and building toward a more prosperous community.

In 2018, we moved into a new, permanent home designed to be a gathering place for non-profits, community leaders, fundholders and residents dedicated to fostering a brighter Chattanooga. Homes are an investment in the future. They aren’t just an appreciating asset or a collection of rooms, but a physical manifestation of a shared vision for the future—held together.

We envision a city where everyone has a chance to live up to their full potential, where opportunity is abundant, and a home where every child can succeed and thrive. We have put this vision into action with key investments with the support of true compassion and generosity from our fundholders.

As you review the Foundation’s work and impact over the past year, please know that none of it would have been possible without you. Together, we can continue to preserve what is precious about Chattanooga while also moving the needle on things that can and should change.

If you want to know more, we are available to sit down with you to talk about how we might make your vision for our community a reality.

In humble gratitude,
