The Nashville Predators Foundation and SmileDirectClub are awarding Communities in Schools of Tennessee (CISTN) with a SuperGrant totaling $100,000.
Communities in Schools of Tennessee is a non-profit that connects students to resources and helps remove barriers for at-risk students by helping them stay in school and on the road to graduation. The SuperGrant will allow five Metro Nashville public schools to continue partnering with CISTN and benefit from its services for students.
“We are excited to award the second SuperGrant of the season to Communities in Schools of Tennessee and recognize the organization for its amazing work in ensuring student success in our community,” says Nashville Predators Vice President of Community Relations Rebecca King. “We look forward to partnering with SmileDirectClub and working with CISTN on future opportunities to grow this relationship.”
Introduced during the 2019-20 season as part of the partnership between the Predators Foundation and Nashville-based SmileDirectClub, multiple SuperGrants ranging from $25,000 to $100,000 will be awarded each season to Middle Tennessee community organizations. Funding will be allocated to support programming or the completion of large-scale projects that empower people during times of life transitions.
Including the funds awarded to Home Street Home Ministries, Monroe Harding, Retrieving Independence and Maple Built, $200,000 in financial support was distributed by the SuperGrant program last season.
