Nashville Public Education Foundation supports programs that build broader and deeper community engagement in public education. Formerly known as the Nashville Alliance for Public Education, it was established by the late Nelson Andrews to secure private philanthropy to support larger, strategic initiatives in public education and prepare every student for college and careers.

United Way of Metropolitan Nashville works to bring people and organizations together to create a community where individuals, families and neighborhoods thrive. It advances the common good by focusing on what it considers the building blocks for a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, good health and safe living conditions. Any eligible health and human services nonprofit organization may submit a proposal for United Way funding. These proposals undergo a rigorous approval process, and once funded, the programs are closely monitored by volunteers to ensure that the money is invested wisely and the programs get the best results.

Community Health Charities of Tennessee and its members are working for a healthy Tennessee.
