Spark Morgan!

Celebrating passion for philanthropy across Morgan County.

It All Begins With a Spark

The Morgan Fund of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta is now Spark Morgan! This fund was established in 2003 to bring together donors, nonprofits and community members to encourage philanthropy in Morgan County. Spark Morgan offers grantmaking, philanthropic learning opportunities and community awareness activities.

Beginning in 2016, the Foundation is combining its various general operating support programs into one grant cycle. This will maximize the time and capacity of nonprofit applicants, allowing organizations to submit information once to be considered for funding.


Since 2003, Spark Morgan! has granted more than $350,000 to area nonprofits to respond to the changing needs of the community. Last year’s grantees include Ferst Foundation for Childhood Literacy, Humane Society of Morgan County, The Madison-Morgan Cultural Center and Morgan County African American Museum.
