South Arts
South Arts (formerly the Southern Arts Federation) is a nonprofit regional arts organization that has been making a positive difference in the arts throughout the South since 1975. South Arts creates partnerships and collaborations; assists in the professional development of artists, arts organizations and arts professionals; presents, promotes and produces southern arts and cultural programming; and advocates for the arts and arts education.

Tennessee Arts Commission
The Tennessee Arts Commission provides crucial funding to arts organizations across the state.

Tennessee Arts Commission Specialty License Plates
Did you know that 70% of state funding for the arts comes from the sale of specialty license plates? No other state in the country brings in arts revenue from license plate sales, and Tennessee remains the leader in arts support across the nation!

Tennesseans for the Arts
Bringing the community together. Promoting education. Delighting our children. At Tennesseans for the Arts (TFTA), we know that the arts foster vibrant communities, while making good economic sense. They inspire our children, while they tell us who we are. We believe there’s no better way to enrich the quality of life for all of us.

Focus For The Good
"Focusing on a better photograph at a time."
Our Goals: 1) Use photography to raise awareness of and money for the impoverished in our community. 2) Teach  underprivileged children photography skills so they can develop a voice and be able to tell their stories. 3) Provide affordable photography services to area non-profit organizations.
