Venture Philanthropy Grants

The Phoenix Club of Nashville strives to make a positive, outsized, and permanent impact upon the lives of Middle Tennessee’s under-served youth. We align our membership, fundraising platforms, and strategic partnerships with this goal because we believe that, with smart alignment of resources and focused support, every child can chart a path to success and secure a brighter future for themselves.

With a growing number of youth-focused nonprofits worthy of support, and seeking to amplify the impact of our investments, we created a merit-based ‘Venture Philanthropy’ process to allocate donations to the most deserving projects. Venture Philanthropy allows us to apply venture capital and business management concepts to our philanthropic pursuits, using total community impact to measure return on investment.
