Grants of up to $5,000 to Georgia nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible counties for programs that benefit youth. Funding is intended to improve the quality of life and provide general opportunities for youth that are underserved, at-risk, and disadvantaged within the Augusta Judicial Circuit. The goal of this program is to give these youth alternatives to crime, violence, substance abuse, and illiteracy, while at the same time, reducing the burden on the courts and system of justice. Funds should benefit youth in Burke, Columbia, and Richmond Counties.

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).
