In 2014, East Tennessee Foundation (ETF) was pleased to welcome the Norris Area Community Foundation (NACF) as its newest affiliate fund. There were initially eight founding members: Linda Ahlstedt, Ellalyn Crossno, Donnie Curtin, Fred Fields, Jim Hayes, Timothy Hester, Elizabeth Morgan, and Loretta Painter. When Jim Hayes, NACF Advisory Board Chair and Founding Member, was asked if there could be a “minor” founding member, he had to consult others on the Advisory Board. Twelve year-old Nicholas Harshbarger had heard about NACF and wanted to be a part of its beginning. A positive response to include Nicholas initiated a fund raising frenzy of extra chores. With a $10 donation, Nicholas became NACF’s ninth founding member and is one of its most ardent advocates having successfully issued donation challenges to his family and peers.
