In 2017, 24 great organizations in West Georgia will receive over $743,000 to help continue their great work.

THE CARING IMPACT OF OUR DONORS AND VOLUNTEERS

We could not do this work without our amazing donors and volunteers who help us serve our community. In 2016, 274 volunteers gave 2,108 hours in service to others.

OUR VISION

We improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of the West Georgia communities serving Troup, Heard and Meriwether counties.

OUR MISSION

We serve as the community’s catalyst for improved education, health and income for West Georgia area citizens, and we serve as the lead community organization to enhance the capacity and ability of partner agencies to provide for basic human needs in the community.

OUR VALUES

We value accountability, integrity, transparency, efficiency, effectiveness and diversity, and we embrace our role as the philanthropy of choice in West Georgia.
