HOPE REINS AWARDED GRANT FROM EAST TENNESSEE FOUNDATION CNS Y-12 COMMUNITY INVESTMENT FUND
I was so very honored and blessed to have the opportunity to represent Hope Reins and stand among so many amazing organizations in last night! East Tennessee Foundation presented grant checks to recipients from the CNS Y-12 Community Investment Fund, a corporate donor advised fund of East Tennessee Foundation. Thirty (30) grants totaling $180,000 were awarded to nonprofit organizations in 10 East Tennessee counties. The grant recipients were honored at a reception on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at the New Hope Center in Oak Ridge. I am pleased to announce that Hope Reins was among those and received a $9,040 grant supporting a portion of the costs of the Healing Hearts program this year with a goal of impacting 85 children in our surrounding counties.
CNS is the contractor at Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, TN, and the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, TX. In addition to managing its two sites, CNS has established funds at East Tennessee Foundation and Amarillo Area Foundation (AAF) as part of their commitment to the host communities of Amarillo and Oak Ridge, as well as their local counties and regions. By establishing these funds, CNS has created opportunities for ETF and AAF to work together as they create programs for CNS employees to work with their local community foundations to award grants benefiting nonprofit organizations in their respective regions. The CNS Y-12 Investment Advisory Committee, comprised of CNS Y-12 employees, reviewed applications and recommended grants to support nonprofit organizations whose projects addressed one or more of the committee’s four focus areas: Education, Senior Citizens, Veterans, and Youth.
East Tennessee Foundation, established in 1986 is celebrating its 30th year as a regional community foundation serving 25 counties in East Tennessee, with a mission of enriching lives and strengthening communities in East Tennessee. Special thanks to East Tennessee Foundation, Jan Elston, and everyone at CNS!!
