Local non-profits donate to NYC relief fund

Two local non-profits are gearing up to give money to those affected by the New York City terrorist attacks, via what is now called the September 11 Fund.

The Board of Directors of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee has voted to give $10,000 of its operating budget to the fund. As well, The United Way of Metropolitan Nashville is preparing to allocate $15,000 of its reserve to the fund.

In a separate move, the United Way e-mailed its donors Thursday to inform them of how to give directly to the fund if they decided not to use the United Way, CEO Mark Desmond said.
