This year the First Tennessee Foundation is celebrating their 25th anniversary and they are taking birthday gifts to a whole new level! Nonprofits in their service areas were encouraged to submit 60-second videos demonstrating the way a grant from the First Tennessee Foundation would positively impact the community. Of course we hemmed and hawed about our video production skills, but eventually decided the opportunity was just too good to pass up.
A frenzied, but fun brainstorming session led to our concept, “If you open the doors to Discovery”. We’re not too proud to admit that we were inspired by Laura Numeroff’s If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. Voting is currently underway and you can play a huge role in making sure that we move on to the next round. You may vote for Discovery Center one time per day through the end of August! The top 30 vote getters will move onto a second non-public round of judging and 25 gifts will be made between $5,000 and $25,000.

A big shout out to Jennifer Neal is in order for her work in putting the video together (during her beach vacation) and to Tara MacDougall for being our fearless narrator! Be sure to watch the video and vote for us each day!
