The Board of Directors of the Johnson County Community Foundation (JCCF), an affiliate fund of East Tennessee Foundation, (ETF) can now open its hands a bit easier thanks to a sizable donation from an anonymous donor to benefit the residents of Johnson County.
“The gifts of $194,454.72 will support both the Johnson County Scholarship Fund and the Johnson County Community Foundation Endowment Fund,” said ETF Advancement Officer, Samantha Amick in a recent release.
According to ETF officials, established in 1999, the
Johnson County Scholarship Fund has awarded over $1.1 million in scholarships to Johnson County students.
Since 2006, the Johnson County Community Foundation Endowment Fund has awarded over $250,000 in grants to nonprofits, public agencies, and charitable programs that serve Johnson County citizens.
Created by a group of caring and committed Johnson County residents in 2001 to serve the people of their county, JCCF gives donors a way to “Give Where You Live” supporting local nonprofits, public agencies, and compelling charitable causes.
“JCCF Advisory Board Members encourage Johnson County citizens to help make Johnson County a better place to live, work, and play by making contributions to JCCF,” the release said.
JCCF is one of many affiliate funds ETF a nonprofit organization created by and for the people of East Tennessee administers. Serving more than 25 counties within East Tennessee, ETF consists of many donors joined together to make the region they love a better place as well as seeks to build endowments, creating a permanent source of philanthropic funding for the East Tennessee region.
