Helping others carry forth the torch.

Aligning women to better serve their communities.

In Greek mythology, the Graces, or Charites, primarily existed to give joy to all people and to serve as role models to young women. The offspring of Zeus and Eurynome, their names are Euphrosyne (joy), Thalia (bloom), and Aglaia (brilliance). It is in this vein that the Graces Grant was born and designed to assist Nashville-area women who are improving the local community in the areas of non-profit, hospitality, food, beverage or other lifestyle-focused industry.
