CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments
|While NTFS was forced to shut down workshop operations between March and July, 2020, the workshop was subsequently reopened with limited hours and with limited staff in order to observe all necessary health and safety protocols required during the pandemic. NTFS was fortunate to have the guidance of two regular NTFS volunteers/physicians who developed and maintained stringent workshop safety protocols that allowed NTFS to return to limited but safe and steady production. However, the limits to our production did affect our income and output, as the adjustments to this year's NTFS budget indicate.
Further, despite the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic, Nashville Tools for Schools safely completed over 50 projects in 2020 through spring 2021, providing over 600 items to over 35 schools and organizations. These projects included approximately 500 plexiglass safety shields which were crucial to the safe reopening of schools in Davidson County. We look forward to continuing our forward trajectory and our return to full operations in conjunction with CDC and Metro safety guidelines. We are proud that, despite the pandemic, we have still been able to serve our students and teachers, and we anticipate a continued increase in project requests as schools prepare to reopen this fall. We also expect that revenues will continue to increase in conjunction with increased project requests and production.
NTFS continues in its efforts to increase our fundraising in order to complete a greater number of projects for an even larger number of schools at little-to-no cost. NTFS did and will continue to apply for renewal of existing grants and we will also pursue new grant opportunities to support our mission of "building for our childrens' future". NTFS did and will also pursue individual donations via social media, a quarterly newsletter and outreaches such as Giving Tuesday and The Big Payback, in order to reduce our overall reliance on grants to fund our operations.

|This organization files a 990-N form with the IRS, which does not provide specific financial information. Most small tax-exempt organizations whose annual gross receipts are normally $50,000 or less ($25,000 for tax years ending after December 31, 2007 and before December 31, 2010) are required to electronically submit Form 990-N, also known as the e-Postcard, unless they choose to file a complete Form 990 or Form 990-EZ instead.
