​Community Chest Sets Goal


The Sewanee Community Chest has announced its goal for 2020-21. Sponsored by the Sewanee Civic Association, the Community Chest raises money yearly for local charitable organizations serving the area. This year’s goal of $98,390 will help 19 organizations that have requested basic needs funding for quality of life, community aid, children’s programs, and those who are beyond Sewanee but still serve our entire community. A number of organizations did not submit their annual request this year due to their inability to operate at this time. A total of $104,085 in funds were requested this year.

Now more than ever, these organizations will rely heavily on the annual funding from the Community Chest.

The Sewanee Community Chest is made possible by contributions. All donations are tax deductible. Donations can be made by credit, debit, or PayPal Giving at Sewanee Community Chest, either one-time or recurring. Checks may be mailed to Sewanee Community Chest, P.O. Box 99, Sewanee, TN 37375. For more information, go to sewaneecivic.org or email sewaneecommunitychest@gmail.com.
