As a result of the generosity of our community, on April 26, 2019, we will be awarding $100,000 in Cobb Community Impact Grants (“CCIG” or “Impact Grants”) ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 each. As in prior years, these grants will be awarded for the creation of new programs and the expansion of existing programs that improve quality of life in the county. Unlike in prior years, this is NOT a reimbursement grant.
See Apply for a Grant for details on eligibility and program requirements. Non-profits which meet the eligibility requirements and plan to apply for an Impact Grant for a qualified program are encouraged two attend one of two training sessions.
Tuesday, January 22, 2019 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Cobb Chamber Building, Community Room
240 Interstate North Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30339
Registration is required, and space is limited. Be sure to review all eligibility and program requirements before registering. Grant applications will be available following the January 24th training session.
In addition, you may register to stay from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm on either CCIG training days and learn about Cobb Community Foundation’s newest initiative, Cobb Community Connection (“Connection”). The Connection is an easy to use interactive database that allows your non-profit to post and maintain your current and ongoing volunteer opportunities, financial needs as well as goods and services needed or those you have to offer to other nonprofits. Donors and volunteers will be one click away from finding opportunities and needs based on a variety of criteria they choose. A Connection account is a requirement to apply for the 2019 Cobb Community Impact Grants. Get your nonprofit’s Connection account started here.
