About Giving

The North Georgia Community Foundation is a public grantmaking foundation that builds community by encouraging long term giving through endowment funds created by caring donors.

As members of this community, you give in many ways.  Giving feels good but what feels better is knowing that your giving has really made a difference.  The Community Foundation can connect you with nonprofit organizations that do the work you care about so you can see the results of your giving today. 

By creating a permanent, endowed fund at the Community Foundation, you can be confident that you have made a difference forever.
