Blount Community Fund

An affiliate fund of East Tennessee Foundation

Blount Community Fund was established in 2016 by a local donor and a group of community leaders who wanted to make a lasting commitment to the people of Blount County by developing a resource to achieve community goals and promote Blount County. The Blount Community Fund is a permanent endowment that has been created to support opportunities to advance and improve the quality of life of the residents of Blount County.


You may currently reside in Blount County, may have been born there, spent your childhood there, or this may be the community in which you one day desire to live. Whatever your relationship with Blount County, your interest and support is greatly needed and appreciated. We can accept gifts of many assets of value and encourage you to contact us at any time to discuss your contributions to enhance the Blount County “legacy.” Our staff stands ready to meet with you to discuss how to make this into a reality.

You may want to make a donation today and can do this by clicking the link on this page GIVE NOW.
