Division of Charitable Solicitations
Any person or group that appeals to the public for support of its charitable cause is a "charitable organization". Persons or organizations that intend to solicit donations must register before asking the public for contributions.
Excluded from the requirement to register are religious institutions and affiliated groups; educational institutions and supporting organizations; volunteer fire departments, rescue squads and local civil defense organizations; and, organizations that receive contributions less than $30,000 annually.
(Excluded groups are required, however, to complete and file an "Exemption Request" form.)

Only registered groups may post events.
You may submit your event here and have it shared with the world!
WMOT must first review and approve listings before they are posted.
Please see the legal notice on the upper left side of this page.
Event Description: Grateful Days Open House is a Fundraiser to benefit Mindful Care Adult Day Services (a program of Elders First). Donations will support the continued provision of a daytime program (8am-5pm) of meaningful, enjoyable activities, primarily for persons age 55 and up with memory loss. The program gives family caregivers a much-needed break as well as a very positive alternative for their loved ones. Dress is casual, refreshments will be served. This will be a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. Come meet our talented staff and our Board of Directors while mingling with your friends. The event is sponsored by Andy Womack, State Farm Agent, St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital, Dr. James W. Garner, and GSRM Attorneys at Law of Nashville. Mindful Care is sponsored, in part, by United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties, the Baptist Healing Trust, a Community Development Block Grant, Charity Circle, and the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Directions: Hastings House Bed and Breakfast owned and operated by Jane and Bob Blakey
