Public Education Funds

Each year, the Community Foundation of South Georgia accepts applications from teachers who are employed in Thomasville City and Thomas, Brooks, and Grady County Public School districts. Since inception, our Public Education Funds have awarded over $141,000 in project 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
    schools.
  • Serve as a catalyst for public/private partnerships which benefit education.
