The Southeast Alabama Community Foundation (SACF) is a public foundation which links charitable resources with community needs and opportunities. Each year, the Foundation awards grants to nonprofits offering projects and programs in Coffee, Dale, Geneva, Henry or Houston counties that, in the opinion of SACF’s Advisory Committee, will improve the quality of life in our community.

The Southeast Alabama Community Foundation is an affiliate of the Central Alabama Community Foundation and offers citizens in the Wiregrass region the opportunity to build long-term support for their community. Individuals may establish new funds to support specific purposes or organizations, or they may contribute to existing funds.

Established in 1995 by community leaders, SACF serves the five-county Wiregrass region of Henry, Houston, Coffee, Dale and Geneva counties. SACF's Advisory Board of area citizens oversees an annual grantmaking program that determines the best investment of these community dollars.
