Established in 1998

The Cheatham County Community Foundation is a pool of charitable resources dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for the county’s residents, now and always. In 1998, a group of Cheatham County citizens were looking for a way to serve both current and future generations. Acknowledging that education is key to the development of both individuals and the community, they sought to provide scholarships for local residents. Created through affiliation with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, The Cheatham County Community Foundation established a vehicle for providing scholarships. Later, it began providing permanent funding to support local nonprofits addressing unmet needs of the county. The leadership of The Foundation is particularly interested in ideas that will enrich the quality of life for all citizens in Cheatham County.
