What is Impact Philanthropy?
Impact Philanthropy is a new approach we’re taking to further engage donors to meet the ever-changing needs of our community. Impact Philanthropy includes print, online and “Community Conversations” with nonprofits and donors – all with the focus of connecting donors with their passion and the needs of the community. Through Impact Philanthropy, we help define the issues and opportunities nonprofits and those they serve are facing.
Featured Issue: Higher Education
The issue of higher education is a critical one in our metro Atlanta community. At The Community Foundation, we know that one of the avenues towards personal success and community well being is the pursuit and achievement of higher education. Impact Philanthropy: Higher Education, reviews some of the current public policy issues that impact higher education for thousands of Georgians; the ways in which The Community Foundation and our donors have made personal commitments to increasing access to education for Georgia youth; introduce you to nonprofits helping individuals prepare for college and careers; and present ways in which you can support this critical issue.
