The 2014–15 Sewanee Community Chest fund drive has reached the half way point. Approximately $51,000 has been raised to date; this year’s goal is $101,000. This year’s Community Chest Stewards, Marilyn and Tom Phelps, hope to complete the campaign by February 2015.
Since 1908, the Sewanee Community Chest has kept this community strong and vital. Sponsored by the Sewanee Civic Association, the Community Chest raises money for local charitable organizations that work to educate and nurture children, aid the community, and improve the quality of life. In setting the goal for the Community Chest, the Sewanee Civic Association board and membership approved funding for 27 organizations and initiatives in Sewanee and surrounding communities, assuming the goal is met.
The Sewanee Community Chest is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax deductible. To make a donation, send to PO Box 99, Sewanee TN 37375.
