Grant seekers are encouraged to contact the Foundation by phone before submitting a Letter of Inquiry. Inquiries will be evaluated to determine the extent to which they fit with programmatic priorities. For more information about Foundation priorities, see Education, Environment, and Health.
The strongest proposals will reflect and serve an organization’s mission and strategic plan. The Foundation is willing to consider all types of funding requests except start-up funding and endowment campaigns.
In most cases, priority will be given to organizations that serve the metropolitan Atlanta area. The Foundation works state-wide on behalf of the environment and will occasionally consider education and health inquiries that serve other parts of Georgia.
