2020 Biscuit Breakfast


Thank You!

Wow! Thank you so much for your tremendous generosity and support of our recent online fundraiser, the Family Biscuit Breakfast.

We set an initial goal of $40,000 because that has been our traditional goal from past Biscuit Breakfasts and supports agency programming in “normal” times. Because of the pandemic, we set a stretch goal of $50,000 in hopes of allowing us to scale our programming to support the increased demand for services and support across all our programs, counseling, family support, school-based programming and a 30%+ increase in crisis calls. We exceeded our reach goal by over $10,000 to raise a total of $60,238.75. With this support, we will continue to meet out our mission and support our community. All because of our generous donors and friends like you.

Though we missed the opportunity to host our friends and share a meal together, we avoided the hard costs of holding an in-person event. Hosting the virtual event allowed a greater percentage of funds raised to go directly back into our programs. So in hard times, we made a smart choice to go virtual, and it has really paid off!

As the city of Nashville expands and grows, we felt it important to further explore the vibrant young professional community here. A partnership with the Young Leaders Council made perfect sense to help us identify those younger leaders in our midst who have demonstrated a commitment to enriching Nashville through leadership and passion. Both of our Luminary Award recipients are graduates of the YLC and are impressive young women. Congratulations once again to Charlane Oliver and Allison Plattsmier, and thank you for all you do for our city.

Our presenting sponsors, Northwestern Mutual and Integrum Wealth, along with our event sponsors listed below, helped ensure that this event was so successful. We are grateful to these generous corporate citizens.

Thank you all for supporting our mission to help people in crisis.
