We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!


The Chairman's Club provides grants to youth sports organizations, youth arts and culture clubs, youth education groups, youth health care associations, and more. Our overarching goal continues to be to support activities that empower one of East Tennessee's greatest resource: our young people. The Chairman's Club provides a sophisticated and singular philanthropic opportunity. Each member of the Chairman's Club can purchase an exclusive purple blazer—created specifically by legendary Knoxville tailors John H. Daniel. Unique events are held quarterly, including special breakfasts with noteworthy speakers, exclusive dinners featuring top chefs from across the United States, tailgating parties during University of Tennessee football season, and more. In addition, the Chairman's Club aims to provide a distinct opportunity for fellowship and camaraderie among like-minded and philanthropically focused individuals. We believe in the company and comradeship of those seeking to make a difference—and we believe such a fraternity of patrons will further boost the success of The Chairman's Club. Each member of the Chairman's Club donates $10,000 over 10 years–$10,000 as an immediate donation or $1,000 per year for 10 years (or $250 per quarter). Please join us as we celebrate the youth of East Tennessee.
