The Community Foundation of South Alabama



The Community Foundation of South Alabama was formed in 1975 and incorporated in 1976 as The Mobile Community Foundation - an Alabama Not for Profit Corporation. Sheltered initially by United Way, which supported the work of The Community Foundation's operating fund, the newly formed public foundation was designed to complement the work of United Way by providing grants to agencies other than social service organizations.
