Mission and Work

Mission

To strengthen our region by providing quality services to donors and innovative leadership on community issues.

Philanthropic Services

$87.8m annual program spend • Our professional philanthropic services staff provides one-on-one support in creating a philanthropic strategy, connecting donors with organizations and trends that may interest them, and engaging family members. We also offer regular events and workshops on various philanthropy related topics. As a result of these services, our greatest number of grants are awarded through these non-competitive channels. See further discussion under program titled grantmaking below.the small amount of revenue seen under philanthropic services is mainly fees received from our supporting organizations for professional services which may include consulation on their philanthropic needs.

Competitive Grants

$19.0m annual program spend • The greatest number of grants are awarded through non-competitive channels, such as donor-advised funds, where grant investments are recommended by the donor or fund advisor often with the guidance of his or her philanthropic officer. The total expense related to these donor-advised grants are included under the program heading philanthropic services. The grants awarded by the foundation through competitive channels, for which the costs are included under this grantmaking program heading, occur where prospective grantees submit proposals that are reviewed by staff and/or members of a designated grantmaking committee and trustees. These grants prioritize general operating support and nonprofit effectiveness and are made to address critical issues in the 23-county Atlanta region. All grants, both competitive and non-competitive, are reviewed and approved by our board of directors.

Community Partnerships and Initiatives

$5.0m annual program spend • To create meaningful change, we are driven by "impact areas" with focused, measureable objectives: arts, community development, education, nonprofit effectiveness, and well-being. These five impact areas are our promise to the 23-county region that, hand-in-hand with our donors, nonprofits, philanthropic and civic partners, we will make Atlanta a place where all residents can thrive and prosper. The issues represented by impact areas are complex and multi-faceted and require cross-sector, regional collaboration. The community foundation's extensive base of knowledge and relationships across the region, spanning diverse communities, populations and both challenges and opportunities, make us uniquely poised to serve as a hub for philanthropic action. In 2017, specific initiatives included (but were not limited to): the neighborhood fund, grants to green, the metropolitan Atlanta arts fund, the Atlanta aids fund and neighborhood nexus.
