Grants of up to $5,000 to Georgia nonprofit organizations in eligible regions to improve the delivery of services to residents. Funding is intended to support specific expenses that clearly contribute to the success of organizations and the people served. Creative, innovative, and compelling requests have the best chance of receiving support from a Community Foundation donor. Eligible organizations must be located and providing services within the Foundation’s 23-county service area in the metro Atlanta region.
As a service to its donors and nonprofits, the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta publishes Extra Wish to share special needs of nonprofit organizations in the 23-county metro Atlanta region. Since its inception, Extra Wish has connected donors to nonprofits that have “extra” funding needs to enhance their daily work. Extra Wish funding is intended to support items, beyond an organization’s operating budget, those “hard to fund” things that will enhance the organization’s work. Extra Wish is shared with all of the Community Foundation’s current and planned giving donors, more than 1,000 philanthropists.
Nonprofits must provide programs and/or services that align with one of the following areas:
