Connecting, Convening, and Collaborating for a Better Community

From our stewardship of hundreds of Donor Advised Funds (DAFs), to our responsive discretionary grantmaking, the Community Foundation brings together the people and resources that create meaningful impact for a multitude of individuals and organizations throughout our region. Since our inception we have:

  • Received $455 million in contributions
  • Stewarded more than 330 Funds
  • Granted over $260 million to organizations around the Chattahoochee Valley and across the country
  • Added over $102 million in charitable value for the community via our pooled investments

Our Areas of Focus

In addition to realizing the philanthropic dreams of our donors, the Community Foundation leads community conversations and makes strategic discretionary grants to respond to these key issues our area is facing.


The future of Chattahoochee Valley communities relies on the promise of our youth and young adults. Enabling an education that helps them realize their full potential is one of the most important ways we help our area thrive.

Stories of Change

On the other end of every grant we make, or gift we process, is one person, or many, whose lives are forever changed by the generous philanthropy propelled by CFCV. With each story, the larger picture of our impact unfolds.
