A Celebration of Possibilities

Inspire Nashville is an event honoring and celebrating our community and the individuals who give their heart and soul to make it what it is. There are few places that capture the heart, open up the soul, and inspire growth and change like Nashville. This energy and culture is made possible by the tireless efforts of those who make an impact daily by giving back to their communities and inspiring those in need. We set out to honor those silent heroes who serve on your boards, help at your soup kitchens and make our world a better place with the annual Inspiration Award honoring inspiring service to the community.

Our goal is to select an individual whose actions and service line up with the heart and mission of The Onsite Foundation. We will recognize and acknowledge his or her contributions to the community while celebrating everyone who lives with a greater purpose. Please join us as we bring together the creative forces of music and the spoken word for an unforgettable inspiring evening that you won’t forget!
