Thanks to generous grants from the Peyton Anderson Foundation and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, $3 million has been invested into the Downtown Challenge Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia. This three-year program will fund the best ideas to transform Downtown Macon, also known as the Urban Core, into a place that can grow with grace, build upon its good bones, dance to its local rhythm, care for its heart, and coordinate and focus for maximum impact.
This grant will fund creative, transformational ideas for Macon’s downtown from organizations and individuals. A broad-based, competitive grant program, the Challenge will fund the best ideas – small and large – that entice both businesses and individuals to want to call Downtown Macon home.
The Downtown Challenge Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia was created to implement the Macon Action Plan through a series of grants to local businesses, nonprofits, individuals, and government entities. To read the Macon Action Plan, please visit www.MaconActionPlan.com.
