Public Education Funds

Each Fall, the Community Foundation of South Georgia accepts applications from teachers who are employed in Brooks, Grady, Thomas County and Thomasville City Public School districts.  Grants are for up to $500 and are awarded annually to support Spring classroom projects.  Since inception, our Public Education Funds have awarded over $351,000 in grants to teachers working in these school systems.  

The goal of these funds is to:

  • Encourage quality educational projects & activities not funded through normal
    school budget.
  • Generate community recognition of the need for and the benefit of the excellent public
  • Serve as a catalyst for public/private partnerships which benefit education.

Application Deadlines & Downloads

Along with your application, please include:

  • A thorough description of how your project will promote academic excellence
  • How many children will be affected by your project
  • A detailed budget of how money will be spent
