ACF opens grant cycle

The Atmore Community Foundation recently announced the opening of its third competitive grant cycle for local non-profits addressing the needs of the Atmore community.

According to a release, the advisory committee of the ACF made the announcement, and applications will be available on Dec. 8, 2020. The deadline to apply is Jan. 4, 2021.

The ACF was founded in April 2017 as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of South Alabama.

The ACF serves as a vehicle to receive donations and bequests to benefit the local community. Through concerted grantmaking, the Atmore Community Foundation Fund was created to give the local leaders in Atmore an opportunity to make a difference in their hometown. With access to the Foundation’s financial and administrative services, these funds have the potential to make a long lasting impact on the town’s local economy, health and wellbeing.

Nonprofits interested in applying for a grant can view the 2020–2021 grant guidelines and access the online grant application portal by visiting https://atmorecommunityfoundation.org.
