2016 Salute to Excellence Sponsors

Salute to Excellence provides a unique opportunity to not only demonstrate the philanthropic spirit of Nashville’s business sector, but also to showcase the sector’s involvement and commitment to the recognition of the great work making a difference in our community. Our nonprofit sector is strong and can only get stronger with partners who are willing to invest in our community and stand apart as supporters of our nonprofits. A total of 13 awards and more than $250,000 will be presented to organizations across Middle Tennessee on Tuesday, October 18 at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
