Crowdfund Middle Tennessee nonprofits through A Community Thrives


A community thrives

The donation period for A Community Thrives has begun.

A Community Thrives is an initiative founded five years ago by Gannett, the parent company of the Tennessean and USA TODAY. Through the program, nonprofit and municipal organizations have the opportunity to crowdfund and win grants to benefit their cause.

Organizations are eligible for hundreds of community operating grants starting at $2,500, chosen by leaders across Gannett’s USA TODAY Network of more than 250 news sites in 46 states. There are also 15 national grants of $100,000 each.

This year 13 Middle Tennessee nonprofits have been selected for crowdfunding, which will run through Aug. 13. Discover more about each below.

431 Ministries is a nonprofit with the goal of helping women in crises of all kinds. It uses faith “to fit some of the pieces together” and specializes in issues of abuse, addiction, homelessness and financial troubles.
