The Community Foundation is a top-20 community foundation nationally with nearly $920 million in current assets and is Georgia’s second largest foundation. Through its quality services and innovative leadership on community issues, the Foundation received more than $117 million from donors in 2015 (unaudited) and distributed more than $139.4 million that same year to support nonprofits throughout the region and beyond.
