There will be an orientation session on Wednesday, August 8 for nonprofits interested applying for loans through the Nonprofit Loan Fund. See details below.

The Community Foundation conducted a feasibility study in 2009 to determine the needs within the nonprofit sector. Through this study we discovered:
  • 50% of nonprofit organizations had a budget shortfall
  • 82% of these were due to timing (money was supposed to come in but didn’t)
  • 70% of nonprofit organizations indicated they may borrow if loans were available
  • 65% of nonprofit organizations do not have a vibrant, stable banking relationship

Highlights

Building Our Communities through Philanthropy

While many in the region know The Community Foundation for our grantmaking programs, we play a wide variety of roles in creating philanthropic solutions to our communities’ most pressing problems. These roles are as varied as the challenges our Atlanta region faces, but they each start with the premise that communities are built, improved and strengthened by the passion, ideas and resources of its people.
