The Sewanee Community Chest (SCC) is pleased to announce the beginning of the 2023–24 grant cycle. All nonprofits that benefit the community are encouraged to apply.
The 2023–24 funding application can be downloaded here. The application is a Microsoft Word document. Download the file to your computer and rename it with your organization name, i.e., XYZ Organization Request. Once you have filled out the application, send your request and all attachments to us. Please use the subject line “[Your Organization Name] Community Chest Request 2023-24.” You may also mail the completed application to Sewanee Community Chest, P.O. Box 99, Sewanee, TN 37375.
This year, organizations can also apply online with this form. It does require you to have a Gmail email account.
The application deadline is Friday, Sept. 15, 2023. Approved grant funds will be distributed starting April 2024, contingent on funding availability.
The SCC is a nonprofit organization and relies on funding from the community to support charitable programs and initiatives. The SCC supports local organizations that have requested basic needs funding for quality of life, community aid, children’s programs, and those who are beyond Sewanee but still serve our entire community. With your support, the SCC will continue to provide aid where it matters most: elder care, food, books, housing, scholarships, spay/neuter programs for animals, recreational spaces and funding for the local elementary school. As the 2023–24 grant cycle begins, the SCC is also kicking off its yearly fundraising campaign.
The SCC urges everyone who benefits from life in this community, whether you live, work, or visit, to give generously. Donations are tax deductible. Contributions, payroll deductions and pledges are accepted at any time at P.O. Box 99, Sewanee, TN 37375. You can also make a gift through PayPal Giving.
