Since we began, we’ve granted out more than $22 million to nonprofits. We have also provided education and mentoring to many nonprofits, helping them accomplish their mission more effectively.
When you become part of the Athens Area Community Foundation, you help advance best practices and community dialogue among a wide variety of providers.
Our community is diverse with varied needs. The opportunities for you, as a donor, to take action and create lasting change are abundant.
In fact, our donors are forces of change in our community. Every day they are creating dynamic legacies through their giving – legacies that will inspire and inform future generations. Want to join them in becoming a force for good?
While our donors may make grants to qualified charities anywhere in the country, the vast majority of the Athens Area Community Foundation’s grantmaking stays within our six county community that includes Athens-Clarke, Oconee, Barrow, Jackson, Madison, and Oglethorpe.
Since inception, AACF and our donors have awarded more than $22 million

Healthy nonprofits working strategically to address issues are key to the wellbeing of our community.
