Community Foundation of West Georgia



As a community foundation, Community Foundation of West Georgia operates under the principle of perpetuity ensuring that gifts made to the Foundation will grow and make a lasting impact for the community now and in the future.


The Community Foundation of West Georgia took root in 2003 with a remarkable challenge from an anonymous citizen. The challenge was to raise $4 million dollars by the spring of 2004 in order to receive a gift of $3 million dollars. The challenge was met within a short six month period of time.
