How Can My Nonprofit Apply for Assistance
We understand this pandemic will impact our community and our local nonprofits in many ways,  for a long-time to come. We intend to move resources quickly, and at this time we are not hosting a formal application process for the fund.

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.

What Happens with Remaining Funds
We look forward to the day that the funds raised will no longer be needed to fight the effects of this virus and the battle has been won. At that time, remaining funds will become part of our Disaster Relief Fund which is used for similar needs that arise in our community.
