This fall, the Community Foundation will be administering the 3rd Annual grant cycle for the South Georgia Legacy Fund. The South Georgia Legacy Fund is the Community Foundation of South Georgia’s unrestricted fund created to support the ever-changing needs of the communities of South Georgia.
Deadline: Friday, October 9, 2020
In response to the global pandemic now affecting South Georgians, the Community Foundation awarded grants to 64 organizations across South Georgia from the COVID-19 Relief Fund totaling $499,000. Grants were directed to organizations working on the frontlines of the relief effort in our communities who are serving those most at-risk including seniors, children, and low-income or food-insecure individuals with access to basic needs.
“I consider the Community Foundation one of South Georgia’s most strategic assets for the vitality and future of our region. It connects the passion of givers to the purpose of nonprofits to achieve greater and lasting impact of charitable investments into our community. It was an honor to serve on the CFSGA’s board and I continue to look to CFSGA for advice and counsel in support of my personal and professional philanthropic efforts.”
