About NACF

Norris Area Community Foundation believes in the importance of supporting one’s own community and East Tennessee Foundation stands ready to facilitate this by the launch of “Give Where You Live Norris Area” which serves the larger Norris area, including the unincorporated areas of Andersonville, Bethel, and Fairview in Anderson County, Tennessee.  The “Give Where You Live” platform for giving provides multiple options for supporting current and future Norris Area needs.

You may currently reside in the Norris Area, may have been born there, spent your childhood or earlier years there, or this may be the community in which you desire to live in the future.  Whatever your relationship with these communities, your interest and support in this two-fold campaign is greatly needed and appreciated.

We can accept gifts of many assets of value and encourage you to contact us at any time to discuss your gift to enhance the Norris Area “Legacy.”  Our staff stands ready to meet with you and discuss how to make this a reality!

You may want to make a donation today and can easily accomplish this by clicking the link on this page “GIVE NOW.”  This will forward you to our automated giving site where you can complete your donation.
