Nashville PRSA's Quality Time with PR Minds  


On behalf of Nashville PRSA, we invite you to participate in "Quality Time with PR Minds" on Thursday, December 4 - an event pairing public relations professionals with nonprofits for PR counseling.  


Public Relations professionals and nonprofits will use this time to brainstorm, network, and solve the world's problems. (Okay, maybe not that last part.) However, nonprofits will walk away with new tactics that can be easily implemented into their ongoing strategies.


WHEN: Thursday, December 4, 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

WHERE: McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations, 611 Commerce Street, Suite 2800, Nashville, TN 37203

*Light breakfast included.


Interested nonprofits should register by November 26. Priority will be given to those with no dedicated public relations staff. Register here.
New Donation Portal
In an effort to keep fees as low as possible for both donors and nonprofits, The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and have recently renegotiated contracts with our payment processing vendors. The online donation tool will move to a new payment gateway later this week.

The transition to the new gateway requires that we re-initiate any monthly, quarterly, or annual gifts set up through on the new system. Donors with active recurring payments have been contacted directly regarding this gateway transition and asked contact us for assistance. We appreciate your help in this effort! If there are particular donors who give to your organization on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis through, please help ensure that their gifts are re-activated by following up with them beginning next week to ensure that they received our communication and to remind them of this change.

Anyone needing assistance can contact us at (615) 321-4939 or
