On May 9th, The Predators Foundation distributed a record breaking $405,000 in grant funding in May, benefiting community service and charitable organizations throughout the Middle-Tennessee/ Nashville area.
The Land Trust’s very own Christine Burke and Katie O’Bryan accepted a grant benefiting educational outreach through The Harvest and History Field Trip program.
This amazing grant builds upon our programming and support from The Community Foundation and will allow us to expand our already outstanding educational farming programs, centered on the Glen Leven property. With their help, we have been able to host events like the John Early Family Day, allowing a group of lucky schoolchildren from MNPS Museum Magnet School to spend an entire day of hands-on learning with cows, bees, and vegetables on Glen Leven Farm.
Since its 1998 inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $3.5 million in financial grants to Nashville and Middle Tennessee community service and charitable organizations. Between the grants and other charitable donations, such as player ticket programs and fund-raising efforts, the Foundation put more than $1 million back into the community during the 2012-13 season. The Land Trust is thankful to the Predators Foundation for this incredible gift and for all they do for our communities!
