First Horizon Foundation’s grant process live

Fresh off the 25 Years of Giving Campaign, the First Horizon Foundation is accepting nonprofit funding requests for its next grant cycle. Eligible nonprofits are encouraged to submit their funding requests for consideration by Dec. 1.

“For the past 25 years, our Foundation has partnered with organizations to serve and uplift our communities,” says Charles Burkett, chairman of the First Horizon Foundation. “From providing students with financial literacy education to empowering individuals through job training and readiness programs to making access to health services available to the underserved, we’re proud of the direct impact we’ve been able to make.”

“Through the First Horizon Foundation, we’re committed to making a difference within the communities we serve every day,” says Jay Dale, Chattanooga market president. “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to give back where we can, with a focus on nonprofit companies that do much for the Chattanooga area.”

The Foundation focuses contributions to strengthen these signs of a strong community:

• Arts and culture

• Education and leadership

• Environment

• Financial literacy

• Health and human services

Decisions will be communicated in early 2019.

The First Horizon Foundation is the private charitable foundation of First Horizon National Corporation, the parent company of First Tennessee Bank National Association (operating as Capital Bank and First Tennessee).
