Background: The Tennessee World Affairs Council received a $5000 grant in the past to fund Academic WorldQuest. That grant allowed us to carry out the Tennessee competition and the state championship match, and to bring the winning team — the Martin Luther King, Jr., Magnet High School, in Nashville, to Washington DC for the national competition. In addition to the tournament the 4 student team and teacher-coach were treated to several days of visiting international affairs institutions including foreign embassies, the World Bank, think tanks and NGOs and Capitol Hill to meet senators and congressmen.
The new opportunity to for a First Tennessee Foundation grant will enable the Tennessee World Affairs Council to put on additional, new programs to enhance our community’s understanding of international affairs and our parts in the global community.
Thank you, as always, for your support.

Message from the First Tennessee Foundation:
150 Days of Giving
First Tennessee Bank is proud to be celebrating 150 years of serving. The bank was founded in 1864, when Abraham Lincoln was president – and today First Tennessee has the 14th oldest national bank charter in the country. Investing in its communities is an important part of that heritage. That’s why the bank created the First Tennessee Foundation – and why the foundation is joining the celebration with 150 Days of Giving. Starting on First Tennessee’s 150th birthday – March 25, 2014 – the First Tennessee Foundation will give away $5,000 to a different nonprofit every day for 150 days. That’s 150 Days of Giving. Find out which organizations are eligible and how they can win, then watch a 3-minute video story of our employees explaining how it all works and download our flyer. Then beginning March 10, you can vote at www.150DaysOfGiving.com.
