The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation's 2022 Community Impact Fund cycle opened January 3rd. Funding is made possible through the Foundation’s Coastal Community Endowment and its Fundholders. Applications will be accepted through February 28th. All proposals and supporting documentation are due by the closing date. Awards will be announced in early May.
The 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 multi-generational approach, the CCGF now also consider proposals from agencies that support the parents, guardians, and caregivers of at-risk youth.
Eligibility: The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation invites inquiries from non-profit public charities and educational institutions serving the citizens of Camden, Glynn, and McIntosh 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 address 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 caregivers.
