South Georgia Legacy Fund

The Community Foundation of South Georgia believes in the importance of strengthening local nonprofits and that a vibrant community is one with strong nonprofits doing great work to address the community’s most pressing needs. The South Georgia Legacy Fund was created with this in mind and works to support nonprofits in our area. An overall total of $30,000 will be awarded in 2021 with grants ranging from $1,000 to $5,000. Applicants must be organizations classified as tax-exempt under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code or a 501(c)3 equivalent and have their primary office and/or services located in CFSGA’s service area.  A full listing of the counties we serve can be found on our Home page under the Georgia map.  

What We Look For:

  • Proposals from organizations with a well-planned approach to issues and needs, a demonstrated base of support, committed leadership, and the involvement of individuals with the skills necessary to carry out the work.
  • 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, demonstrated a base of support, committed leadership, and the involvement of individuals with the skills necessary to carry out the work.
