The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation (CCGF) was incorporated in 2005, as a tax-exempt public foundation created by and for the people of Glynn, McIntosh, and Camden counties. The Foundation now has over $50 million in assets and hosts over 100 distinct funds. Since its inception, CCGF has awarded over $23 million in grants to community organizations in the 3-county region and beyond.
The Foundation joins over 750 other U.S. community foundations as one of the fastest growing sectors of American philanthropy today. Governed by a twenty (20) member local Board of Directors, the Foundation has earned recognition from the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations, awarded by the Council on Foundations to community foundations that meet the highest philanthropic standards for operational quality, integrity, and accountability. CCGF is a Candid Platinum Transparency participant and an active member of both Philanthropy Southeast and the Council of Foundations.
The Foundation serves ordinary citizens who have the extraordinary vision to promote a better life for their neighbors, friends, families, and fellow coastal Georgians - today and for future generations. The Community Foundation seeks to be the region’s trusted source for thoughtful philanthropic counsel, sound financial management and strategic community investment.
We hope you will join us in making a difference through philanthropy!
