Our 30th Anniversary

Celebrating Three Decades of Philanthropy

30 years of philanthropy


In 1993, a group of forward-thinking community leaders founded the Community Foundation of Central Georgia to encourage philanthropy and strengthen our region. For 30 years, CFCG has provided donors a simple, powerful and highly personal approach to giving. Their generosity achieves their own personal philanthropic impact, and collectively strengthens our region — both now and for generations to come. Throughout the year, we’ll be sharing some of the stories that woven together create the fabric of the Central Georgia community.




The Stories


Making a Difference for Generations

The Simmons Charitable Trust Fund was CFCG’s first donor advised fund, established in 1993 by Mrs. William P. Simmons.  Mr. and Mrs. Simmons believed in supporting their community then, now and forever.  Their generosity and planning have enabled three generations of their family to support organizations and causes important to them. Read more about how their funds are making a difference.
