Overview:

The North Georgia Community Foundation believes in the importance of strengthening local non-profits and that a vibrant community is one with strong non-profits doing great work to address the community's most pressing needs. 

Through our Community Impact Grant Program, the Community Foundation will consider applications for projects designed to improve the quality of life in the north Georgia region.

Funding Priority

The Community Foundation accepts applications only from organizations classified as tax-exempt under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and seeks to leverage opportunities in the region where a moderate amount of grant money can achieve a significant result. 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. We are interested in those organizations that can demonstrate they have planned their projects in light of overall community need and that similar projects by other organizations do not duplicate the proposed services. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • The Community Foundation accepts applications only from organizations classified as tax-exempt under 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
  • Grant applications are accepted from non-profit organizations whose primary office is located in one of the following counties which comprise the Community Foundation's service area:
    • Banks, Dawson, Fannin, Forsyth, Franklin, Habersham, Hall, Hart, Jackson, Lumpkin, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, Union and White

Preferences:

  • A request which asks the Foundation to provide a portion of the support for a project will generally receive greater priority than one which looks to it as the single funding source.

Ineligibility:

  • The Community Foundation does not provide funding from its Community Impact funds for annual fund campaigns, lobbying/electioneering, grants to individuals, and grants to private foundations.
