Do you work for a nonprofit? Do you volunteer or serve on the board of one? Help us spread the word about the Organizational Profile and Common Grant Application!
Creating a profile and completing the Common Grant Application is a vital first step in a nonprofit’s relationship with the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta. It helps us get to know your organization and automatically means you are considered for many of our competitive grant program applications, including General Operating Support. This information drives reports for our donors about your nonprofit and the issues you work on. It also initiates informational meetings. It’s the very best way to ensure that we know about you and the great work you are doing in our 23-county Atlanta region.
We encourage all organizations across the region – whether nonprofits or community-based groups – to complete both their Organizational Profiles and the Common Grant Application.
Are you with a nonprofit that has already completed a profile? Now is the time to refresh your information. Have you entered a new fiscal year? Have you had changes in programs, on your board or with your leadership? This is your chance to tell us all about the exciting changes at your organization and receive the funding it needs to succeed!
It’s also important to note that Common Grant Applications are automatically removed from our system if they are not updated within a year. Our portal originally launched on March 31, 2016 – so if your organization has not updated its Common Grant Application, please do so before March 31 to make sure yours is not deleted.
