2017 Salute to Excellence Sponsors

Salute to Excellence provides a unique opportunity to not only demonstrate the philanthropic spirit of Nashville’s business sector, but to also showcase the community's commitment to recognizing the amazing work of nonprofits. 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 Monday, October 2 at the Omni Nashville Hotel.
