The Community Foundation is a non-profit community fund. It is a creative, cost-effective and tax-efficient way for people to invest in their community. The Community Foundation 's resources come from gifts made by individuals, companies, foundations, and charitable organizations. These gifts are used to create charitable Funds, which provide resources for grant making and help make a positive difference in the community.
Unrestricted gifts from donors to The Community Foundation are distributed through the annual Unrestricted Grants Program, a competitive process designed to help nonprofit organizations meet changing needs in the CSRA Region. Following an evaluation process, The Community Foundation awards grants based on identified community issues and the relative merit of the proposals received.
2016 Grant Application becomes available Wednesday, June 1, 2016.
Submit deadline is Friday, August 19, 2016 at 11:00 am.
Grant Seeker Sessions
Grant Seeker Sessions are provided to give Grant Seekers an opportunity to review the Grant Guidelines for Unrestricted Grants, the Grant Application and instructions with The Community Foundation staff.
The Community Foundation's 2016 Annual Grant Seeker Sessions will be as follows: Tuesday, June 7th and Wednesday, June 8th, 2016. These sessions are free informative seminars for 501(c)(3) organizations (non-profits) wishing to apply for a grant from the Community Foundations Annual Unrestricted Grants Program. To apply for a grant, the following criteria must be met: (1) must have certification as a 501(c)3 organization, individuals are not included; (2) programs requesting funding must serve at least one of the following six counties: Burke, Columbia, McDuffie or Richmond county in Georgia; Aiken, or Edgefield county in South Carolina.
Each Grant Seeker Session will begin at 10 a.m. in the Training Room of Serotta, Maddock, Evans & Company, which is located in Suite 200 at 701 Greene Street (the corner of 7th and Greene Streets) in Augusta, Georgia. Please park in the parking lot behind the brick building which can only be accessed via 7th Street. There is another lot to the side of the building which can be accessed via Greene Street; please do not park in this lot.
Each session is expected to last about one hour. These sessions will be identical; therefore, it is unnecessary to attend more than one sessions. We encourage attendance, but do request that not more than two individuals attend per organization. You are not required to attend the Grant Seeker Session to apply for a grant.
Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make your reservation or call 706.724.1314.
