MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the last quarter century, the First Tennessee Foundation has distributed more than $80 million to nonprofits to help meet community needs.

And we believe it’s time to celebrate.

On June 30, the First Tennessee Foundation will mark its 25th anniversary of supporting the nonprofit organizations in the communities we serve. To celebrate this milestone, and introduce  our foundation as the Capital Bank Foundation in our Mid-Atlantic communities, we’re launching a video contest and distributing $250,000 in grants to nonprofits in our communities in Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

The contest is open to eligible nonprofits that have received grants from our foundation in the past, as well as to those that meet our funding guidelines and would like to apply for grants. Submit a video – up to, but not exceeding 60 seconds – that demonstrates how we have partnered or how we could partner with your organization to support our communities.

Videos produced using mobile devices are acceptable and preferred. Don’t worry about professional production values; we just want to hear your story and see how we can help.

Submission deadline is Aug. 1, 2018. Finalists will be determined by public voting from Aug. 15-31. Winners will be selected by a panel of judges and announced in October. Grants will range from $5,000 to $25,000, with a total distribution of $250,000 across our markets.
