Grant Disbursements

The mission of Georgia Community Foundation, Inc. ("GCF") is to promote and support charitable and educational activities in Georgia and to provide philanthropic advice and charitable giving services to individual donors and, when designated, members of their families.

Since its inception, GCF has made a special effort to serve donors who, after contributing to GCF, desire to recommend qualified charities or charitable projects to which they would like GCF to contribute. Through these "donor-advised" funds, individuals who contribute to GCF, and their family members, can assist GCF in supporting the charitable activities in which they have an interest.

In 2017, a total of $886,183.50 in grants was disbursed to 36 non-profit and faith-based organizations.
