• Wellness Hero
  • Improving the well-being of our neighbors and employees

    Our long-standing support for United Way helps address critical community needs. Each year we organize local United Way campaigns, and in 2016, we donated more than $1.3 million dollars to United Way with the help of our generous employees and the First Tennessee Foundation. Our campaigns have won the Spirit of Tennessee award, United Way's tribute to the strength of our support. However, our involvement doesn't stop with financial contributions. Our executives and employees serve in community-wide leadership roles, and our employees volunteer in member agencies. We know that the health of a community starts with the health of its people. We partnered with RivalHealth to encourage our employees to make wise choices each day in the areas of exercise and nutrition. In addition to offering team challenges and daily tips, RivalHealth provides incentives to help them stay active and fit. And we want to help make sure that our employees and our neighbors have access to top-quality healthcare when they need it. The First Tennessee Foundation supports healthcare institutions throughout the state, including:
