SharingChange is MTE’s charitable foundation funded by members who add pennies a month to their monthly electric bills as a donation. This enables us to support hundreds of local nonprofit organizations. Join us today and help make a difference.
Grants are awarded to local charities and nonprofits serving our communities.
Every penny of the money raised goes to help other members — not to overhead costs.
500+ local nonprofits and charities have received grants.
Since 2003, MTE’s charitable foundation has given over $11 million.
HOW IT WORKS
As a charitable foundation, SharingChange exists to give back to the communities that MTE serves. Members like you donate funds, with 100% of the donations going to local charities and organizations such as Empower Me Day Camp in Lebanon and Project Healing Waters. Since 2003, Middle Tennessee Electric’s charitable foundation has distributed more than $11 million to more than 500 local organizations.
The cooperative's member-elected Board of Directors decided to create MTE’s charitable foundation in November of 2003. In 2016, we renamed and changed the foundation’s name to SharingChange. As former Board Chairman Gordon Bone put it, "It fits perfectly with the principles of our cooperative — to pool a small amount of our individual resources to make a big difference for the community as a whole. So not only is it easy, it’s impactful.”
SharingChange now receives donations from AmazonSmile!
AmazonSmile is no different from Amazon, but it allows charitable organizations to receive a percentage of Amazon customers' purchases. They donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to SharingChange, at no cost to you. Essentially, it’s Amazon's way of giving back to a community.
