SCA Membership Approves Community Chest Funding

At the September 16, 2015 SCA meeting, the membership approved the goal for $100,000 for the Sewanee Community Chest fund drive.

Since 1908, the Sewanee Civic Association and its precursors have believed in the power of area citizens to help sustain community projects and programs.

Through these associations, the community has funded many worthwhile endeavors, such as building parks and the elementary school, helping to complete Alto Road, funding a state highway to the Marion County line, and underwriting blue prints for the stone gates.

Since 1943, the Sewanee Civic Association organizes the Sewanee Community Chest, which in the last decade has raised more than $1 million dollars for local organizations. Every dollar raised stays here in the community, including paying for expenses such as printing and mailing.

The Sewanee Civic Association encourages all of you who benefit from life in the community to give generously to the Community Chest. The Sewanee Community Chest is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax deductible.

Donations and pledges accepted at P.O. Box 99, Sewanee, TN 37375.
