From inception to design, funding, duration and target, each community initiative is unique.
Most people know the Foundation as a source of funds. But we’re also a catalyst. A partner. A convener. A knowledge broker. With our grantmaking programs and initiatives, we fill unique gaps in the community that no other entity addresses—all to create effective, long-term responses to emerging community issues in the Greater Atlanta region.
