South Georgia Legacy Fund Announces 5th Annual Grant Cycle – Application Now Available!
This Fall, the Community Foundation will be administering the 5th annual grant cycle of 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. On an annual basis, the Board of Directors of the Community Foundation accept applications from non-profit organizations throughout our service area and make grants to deserving organizations that are improving the quality of life for the people of South Georgia. Grants are awarded to organizations that can demonstrate they have planned their projects within their general operating budget in light of overall community need or have identified opportunities to build their organization’s capacity for future success and sustainability.
The Community Foundation will award grants between $1,000 and $5,000 through this program. An overall total of $30,000 will be awarded in 2022 through the South Georgia Legacy Fund. Applications will be reviewed by the Grants Committee of the Community Foundation with grant recommendations made to the full Board of Directors for final approval. Grants will be awarded in December 2022. More information on how to apply can be found here.
