How Can My Nonprofit Apply for Assistance

You may email our President & CEO, Michelle Prater, directly at mprater@ngcf.org to inform her of the impact this virus is having on your organization and how you are serving those individuals or families who are being directly impacted at this time.

How Will Organizations be Chosen
Given the immediate needs in our North Georgia area, the Fund is currently focused on providing emergency and critical support to nonprofits addressing basic needs in our community.
