Thanks to the generosity of so many at our 25th Anniversary Celebration, a total of $100,000 will be will be awarded to ten to twenty non-profit organizations serving Cobb County, and we can’t wait to see the impact! Take a look at the video below to see the difference a small amount can make.

Over the course of the last month, seventy-six non-profits submitted applications to be considered for the Cobb Community Impact Grant:  a grant between $5,000 and $10,000 to impact quality of life in Cobb with a brand new program or an expansion of one that’s already proven its success.  We have listed them by the primary issue area that their grant request addresses, but don’t be fooled; many of the grants being requested are for programs that could fall into two, three or even more of these categories.
