The Ayers Foundation was created in 1999 to sustain and/or significantly improve the quality of life in Tennessee; it is dedicated to ensuring that its services continue in perpetuity. This is accomplished through financial support for college scholarships, medical services for children, research into pre-cancer detection and diagnosis, continuing education for teachers and other charitable donations and grants.
In addition, The Ayers Foundation offers a variety of grants for non-profit organizations that serve the communities in which Tennesseans live and work. To see if your non-profit organization meets the qualifications to be considered for a grant, select Grants for Organizations.
