    Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta


    The Community Foundation of Greater Atlanta offers a wide range of competitive financial grants to nonprofit organizations in the 23-county metro Atlanta area. Support takes place through multiple programs, including general operating support, as well as programs and partnerships focused on specific areas of interest and need. In addition to financial grants, the Foundation provides consulting and management assistance.
