Overview:

The J. Bulow Campbell Foundation was established in 1940 through the Will of J. Bulow Campbell, Atlanta businessman, civic leader, Southern Presbyterian layman and Christian philanthropist. Mr. Campbell was modest and frugal, not spending excessively on himself and not seeking recognition for his good works. He was skilled in business and also well-versed in and deeply committed to the teachings of the Christian faith. The Foundation is guided by Mr. Campbell’s instructions and seeks to reflect his philosophy of giving, his legacy of careful stewardship, his humility, and his Christianity. The Campbell Foundation has provided more than $750,000,000 in grants since its inception.

Guidelines

The Foundation is selective in grant decisions and prefers to provide support for a smaller number of significant, carefully planned projects rather than to award large numbers of smaller grants. Almost all grants are conditioned on the organization completing funding for a project or campaign goal with other gifts and pledges.

All applicants are required to wait at least one year from the date of any previous application before submitting a new request. Grantees are asked not to apply for new grants until current grants are “closed.”

The Foundation responds to a variety of charitable organizations serving the general welfare of the community, education, youth, Christian concerns and, to a limited extent, public spaces and cultural organizations. 

The Foundation takes interest in projects that benefit the development and preservation of the Christian faith but does not accept requests from individual church congregations.

Eligibility:

  • Grants are awarded almost exclusively in Atlanta and Georgia.
    • While organizations in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee are technically eligible to receive grants, the Foundation has provided only limited support outside Georgia. 
  • The Foundation considers grants only to institutions determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be tax-exempt and classified by the IRS as “not a private Foundation.” 

Preferences:

  • In consideration of requests by educational institutions, priority is given to those which are privately-supported and accredited, and special consideration is given to Christian-based institutions emphasizing Christian life on campus as well as the intellectual performance of students.
  • Priority is given to non-government, privately supported institutions, and to agencies and organizations that have programs of acknowledged or potential excellence and give evidence or promise of regional leadership.
  • The Foundation gives highest priority to capital funding rather than providing support for current operating expenses or recurring programs.

Ineligibility:

  • It does not award grants outside the six-state region.
  • Grants are not awarded for the following purposes:
    • Annual operating support.
    • Individuals, including financial aid or for education.
    • Loans.
    • Festivals, special events or conferences.
    • Films or documentaries.
    • Start-up funding or seed money.
    • Individual church congregations.
  • No grants or loans of any kind are made to individuals.
