Black Belt Community Foundation



The Black Belt Community Foundation was established in 2003 to pull together human and financial resources to improve life in the area by funding projects that brings about permanent improvement and change to the region.

The Black Belt Community Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to work with all of our citizens to help improve the quality of life in a region that stretches from Mississippi to Georgia . The 12-county area that is our focus is almost one-sixth of the land area of the state. It is home for nearly a quarter of a million people. Rich in human, geographic, cultural and economic diversity, Alabama 's Black Belt got its name from the rich, dark soil found here. The area also is home to the highest percentage of African American residents in Alabama .
