South Cumberland Community Fund has approved grants to 13 organizations across the Plateau totaling $100,000. With this year’s grants, the community fund has awarded over $1.4 million since 2012. Both new and past grant recipients will be recognized at the Celebration for the Plateau event to be held at Kennerly Hall at the Parish of St. Mark and St. Paul, 216 University Avenue, Sewanee, on Saturday, June 10, 2023, at 12:00 p.m.

"We are delighted that the thirteen applicants chosen for this round of grants will mainly focus on strengthening our local economy, building the health and well-being of our Plateau residents, enhancing the beauty & accessibility of our natural wonders, and educating our students," said Marguerite Lloyd, board chair. "We believe funding these organizations will promote economic growth across the Plateau and help bring our communities together."
