We are so thrilled to announce that The Frist Foundation has made a grant to The Beat of Life that will allow us to create

a mobile recording studio. This will allow us to record the music we are creating in our programs while allowing the participants to be fully involved. Many times we are in situations like the prison or a mental health facility where are program participants can not leave the grounds to record the music they are creating with us in the program. Now thanks to The Frist Foundation we will be able to fully immerse all of our participants in every aspect of their music.

More about The Frist Foundation:

The Frist Foundation, originally called The HCA Foundation, was established in 1982 by Hospital Corporation of America. The Foundation became fully independent of the company in 1994. In 1997, the Foundation changed its name to The Frist Foundation to recognize the philanthropic influence of its founding directors, Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Jr., who remains a director, and Dr. Thomas F. Frist, Sr., who died in 1998. Its basic mission is to invest in nonprofit organizations in Metropolitan Nashville in ways that strengthen their ability to provide services. As a private foundation, much of the Foundation’s work involves grantmaking. However, the Foundation also takes an active role in initiating special programs to enhance the community in a variety of other ways..
