The Foundation, originally called The HCA Foundation, was established in 1982 by Hospital Corporation of America. The Foundation became fully independent of the company in 1994. In 1997, it changed its name to The Frist Foundation to recognize the philanthropic influence of its founding directors. The Foundation focuses its grantmaking on nonprofit agencies serving the most vulnerable populations in the Nashville, Tenn., area. The Foundation also wants to help enhance Nashville’s unique community assets and help agencies develop new streams of earned revenue. The Foundation also allocates more than $100,000 each year for the Frist Foundation Awards of Achievement, which are distributed through the Center for Nonprofit Management to organizations that best exemplify excellence in nonprofit management. Proposals are accepted throughout the year. Organizations should make contact by phone, by letter of inquiry, or by completing an application through the Web site.
