The Exchange Club of Donelson Hermitage is a member of the oldest service organization exclusively in the United States. We serve our community through our three programs of service: Americanism, Community Service and Youth Programs. Our national project is prevention of child abuse. Exchange began in 1911 with a group of businessmen who wanted to exchange ideas. Today there are more than 650 local clubs, with almost 20,000 members.


Exchange’s ongoing efforts for the promotion of Americanism focus on the education that the freedom and greatness we enjoy today were hard-won and must be remembered, cherished and protected.

Some examples include:

Community Service

The Exchange Club spends countless hours and resources to improve the lives of people in our community help those in need, and honor those who serve our community.

Some examples include:

Youth Projects

Exchange believes that recognition of deserving youth can have an impact on his or her entire future. We honor students, seniors and youth with scholarship awards, recognitions and more. They need not be the head of the class, we are also looking for those who are hard-working, honest, helpful and fair.

The most popular recognition awards are: 

They include speech and essay contests, reading projects and more. Exchange Excel Clubs, in middle schools, and Collegiate Clubs, in colleges, have been established and are designed to provide mentoring as a means to teaching leadership and civic responsibility to future generations.

Prevention of Child Abuse

This is a national project of Exchange Clubs all over America. We partner with The Family Center of Nashville to volunteer and assist in many needs of this facility to help the children and families of Nashville.

Our club meets every Tuesday morning at McKendree Village on Lebanon Road in Hermitage. Meetings begin at 7:30 and end at 8:30. Meetings include breakfast, prayer, Pledge of Allegiance, brag jar, club business and a guest speaker. We invite you to be our guest for a free breakfast, check out what’s new in your community and to see if this great group of people inspire you to want to be a part of the Exchange family. *We are currently meeting virtually via video conference calls.
