Who We Are

The Footprint Foundation was formed in 2012 when the Lyndhurst Foundation reorganized to create a new community-led board. The reorganization spun off five smaller family foundations, including the Chattanooga-based Footprint Foundation.

Inspired by the city of Chattanooga’s vibrancy, the commitment and spirit of its citizens, and the natural beauty of the region, the Footprint trustees strive to honor their family’s legacy by supporting people who work to preserve and build upon the uniqueness of place.
