For Good. For Ever.

Be Part of Building on our History and Positioning our Community for a Strong Future 

We can’t predict the future, but we can position our community for a strong future. The For Good. For Ever. endowment is dedicated to taking action on the most pressing issues facing the North Georgia region now and in the future, and it provides an opportunity for all who love North Georgia to leave a mark on the region forever.

The flexible dollars the endowment provides enable the Community Foundation to respond, through grantmaking, to emerging needs as they arise and invest significant funding in initiatives and opportunities that strengthen North Georgia.   

As our community’s needs emerge and change, so must our grantmaking. By pooling our resources together in our For Good. For Ever. endowment, we are able to leverage collective giving and build a fund that ensures philanthropic resources are available to meet our needs today, tomorrow and forever.

Give now to support the For Good. For Ever. Community Endowment Fund

Make a gift today to honor Jim Mathis for his 18 years of service as President & CEO. His leadership and vision have grown the Community Foundation into the strong and trusted resource for promoting philanthropy and improving communities it is today. A gift in appreciation of Jim’s dedicated leadership is a wonderful tribute to Jim’s legacy and helps NGCF honor our legacy of making North Georgia a better place to live.

Envision your Impact

Historically grants from our community endowment have averaged $15,000-$20,000 a year while annual grants through donor funds average $4-$5 million. A very important part of our work is connecting donors with causes they care about and facilitating their charitable wishes, but an equally important piece of our mission is assuring unrestricted dollars are available to fund pressing issues now and in the future. Community grants support local organizations working to make a difference for years to come. However, many worthwhile programs are unfunded because of our limited resources. Together we can change that and position our community for a stronger future.
