History and Mission
The Community Foundation of Central Georgia was founded in 1993 by a group of citizens interested in encouraging philanthropy and strengthening communities. Since then, the Foundation has awarded more than $55 million in grants through its donor advised, unrestricted, designated, field-of-interest, scholarship, and organizational endowment funds. As a local center for philanthropy, the Community Foundation of Central Georgia works with individuals, families, corporations, private foundations and not-for-profit organizations to carry out their charitable objectives and address emerging community issues. It is one of more than 700 community foundations in the country and is a member of the Council on Foundations and Southeastern Council of Foundations. CFCG is recognized by the Council as complying with National Accountability Standards.
We help our donors establish long-term charitable funds, using the most tax-advantaged methods, to benefit their causes and our community.
