CEO/Executive Director/Board Comments

510 Foundation is proud to report that the vast majority of the people who operate our programming (75%) are community volunteers, including the Foundation's leader, David Haynes. David is the Chairman & President of the Board of Directors; 510 currently does not have a paid Executive Director or CEO. Operating mostly with volunteers allows 510 to devote the majority of its financial resources to direct impact on clients and the surrounding community. However, as programs have grown, some staff have become necessary to meet increased capacity needs. 510 currently has 1 full-time and 2 part-time staff members, and contracts with about 30 professionals in various areas including arts instruction, athletics officiating, and grant writing and development. In the interest of highest efficiencies and cost-savings, all three of 510 Foundation's paid staff members are technically employed by Nashville First Church of the Nazarene. In addition to taking advantage of economies of scale in human resource management, operating in this partnership with the church allows 510 staff to have access to employee benefits, such as insurance and paid leave, which 510 Foundation would be unable to provide on its own. 510 reimburses the base salary and related costs (salary, insurance, and other benefits) to the church.
