Public Education Funds

Each Fall, the Community Foundation of South Georgia accepts applications from teachers who are employed in Brooks County, Thomas County and Thomasville City Public School districts.  Grants are for up to $500 and are awarded annually to support Spring classroom projects.    

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.
