East Tennessee Foundation is now accepting applications for funding from the CNS Y-12 Community Investment Fund, or CNS Y-12 Fund. That’s a donor advised fund of East Tennessee Foundation, a press release said.
Organizations must be tax-exempt 501(c)(3) or other exempt entities located in the CNS Y-12 20-county service area, the press release said. Grant applications are sought to support one or more of the committee’s two focus areas: cultural and historic preservation, or mental health and substance abuse.
To determine eligibility and apply, visit www.etf.org/grants through May 23. Grant awards will primarily range from $2,000-$15,000. One-year grants will be awarded in early fall 2018, the press release said.
CNS manages and operates the Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge and the Pantex Plant in Amarillo, Texas. CNS established a donor advised fund at ETF in February 2015 to create opportunities for CNS employees to award grants that benefit nonprofit organizations in the region, the press release said.
“CNS simultaneously developed a similar relationship and process for Pantex employees by establishing a fund at Amarillo Community Foundation in Texas,” the release said.
