Since 1908, the Sewanee Civic Association and its precursors have believed in the power of area citizens to help sustain community projects and programs. The goal is to help citizens by funding the community, which leads to a stronger quality of life for all.

The Sewanee Community Chest, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, supports  outreach and many community and educational programs in the tri-county area. For a majority of these groups, 20 percent or more of the Community Chest funds are used to maintain their yearly budgets. A majority of the funding is used to help children’s programs. Some organizations would not exist without continued community support.

If you have not done so, donate to the Community Chest today. Your donation does matter and helps to keep the community strong and vital. Through Community Chest donations, local organizations provide for basic needs in the community such as books, food, recreational spaces, elder care, children’s educational needs and more.

Send your donation to Sewanee Community Chest, P.O. Box 99, Sewanee, TN 37375. Pledges, payroll deductions (renewed annually), and donations made in honor of, or in memory of a loved one are also encouraged. Contact us for more information.
