Grants of up to $5,000 to Virginia nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and educational organizations for programs that benefit underserved, disadvantaged, and at-risk youth in Burke, Columbia, and Richmond Counties. Program areas include education, mentoring, health and safety, family issues, and self-sufficiency.
The Augusta Bar Foundation, Inc. was organized and founded for the primary purpose of improving and promoting the administration of justice. Consistent with this purpose, the Board of Directors has adopted a policy of using the Foundation’s resources to provide funding and support for programs and organizations designed to enhance the lives of and improve opportunities for at-risk, disadvantaged, and underserved youth within the Augusta Judicial Circuit. The goal of this effort will be to give these youth alternatives to crime, violence, substance abuse, and illiteracy with corresponding reduction in the burden on the courts and system of justice.
Currently, the Augusta Bar Foundation will consider funding proposals that include the following areas:
-Requests that address a community need, an emerging community need, and/or provide a new, creative approach to a community need that positively affects at-risk, disadvantaged, and underserved youth.
-Requests that demonstrate the ability to achieve measurable results. Priority will be given to a project/organization demonstrating high probability of sustainability beyond the grant period.
- Requests that fit within at least one of the following funding areas:
- Education (within and outside the school system; skills training);
- Mentoring (providing positive role models in relationships, parenting, employment);
- Health and Safety (conflict resolution and substance abuse);
- Self-Sufficiency (such as education, self-esteem, empowerment, self-respect); and
- Family Issues (such as parenting skills, family counseling, and juvenile justice).
