CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

NeedLink Nashville's Board of Directors has led the organization to a strong financial position. Currently, we have sufficient reserves to meet one year of operations expenses in case of emergency, and we have grown our program funding to reach approximately 60 % of applicants.

We attempt to keep administrative and fundraising expenses low, in order to maximize the funding available for the rent and critical utility services needs of our clients. The important support we have from NES and TVA makes it possible for NeedLink to care for Nashvillians throughout the year. Gracious grants from corporations and foundations together with the important gifts we receive from individual donors make it possible for us to fund thousands of Nashvillians in a financial crisis and facing eviction.

Careful budgeting is key to ensuring that funding is available every week of every year to help people facing a documented emergency situation.

Through our 2020 tornados, Christmas Bombing, floods and throughout COVID, Nashvillians have given generously to NeedLink Nashville. We have been able to assist many thousands of families who were experiencing the very challenging economic hardships brought about by each crisis.

Because of our donors, NeedLink assists Nashvillians each week with everyday financial emergencies and the devastating tragedies in Nashville. We are thankful for all support.
