The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation's 2021 Community Impact Fund cycle is open. Funding is made possible through the Foundation’s Coastal Community Endowment and Fundholders. The application period begins January 4 and proposals are due February 26. Awards will be announced in early May.
The grant focus is on agencies working with at-risk youth and demonstrating measurable results. In 2019, the Foundation expanded its focus, taking into consideration that the success of young people is connected in-part to the success of their caregivers. Using a two-generational approach, the CCGF now also considers proposals from agencies that support the parents, guardians and caregivers of at-risk youth hoping to break the cycle of poverty one family at a time.
Eligibility: The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation invites inquiries from non-profit public charities and educational institutions serving the citizens of Glynn, McIntosh, and/or Camden Counties. Governmental agencies, religious, and civic organizations will also be considered if the grant is to be used strictly for charitable purposes as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, Section 170.
The Foundation accepts proposals for up to $7,500 from agencies with:
1) Programs serving at-risk youth and which specifically addresses one of these areas: Early Childhood Literacy and/or quality-rated child care; teen pregnancy and births to unwed young mothers; juvenile crime and gang activity; High School graduation and workforce readiness; youth development and innovative education strategies; or risk reduction, including child protective, substance abuse, and/or mental health services.
2) Services that concentrate on parenting, job skills and financial security for care-givers.
