About the Foundation

We exist to enable and promote philanthropy that inspires, facilitates and fosters a vibrant and engaged Chattahoochee Valley.

Our Community's Premier Center for Thoughtful Philanthropy

In pursuit of our mission to connect people and resources, and to create meaningful impact for our area both now and for generations to come, we:

  • Help a multitude of donors easily and effectively achieve their charitable interests with a wide range of financial assets.
  • Invest assets responsibly to preserve and increase grantmaking capital.
  • Know the needs of our communities and share that knowledge to empower engagement, leadership and improvement.
  • Lead conversations and collaborate to shape effective responses to community needs and opportunities.

See how this has added up to meaningful impact over the years.
