Welcome

Welcome to the Community Foundation of Northwest Georgia’s Blog for Good. Along with our mission of promoting philanthropy, the blog will present short posts that talk about getting the most out of your charitable giving. It will spotlight organizations who are making a difference in communities and showcase individuals and families who are doing extraordinary work. It will offer a fresh perspective on civics and charitable projects and present good practices and ideas that our friends in the nonprofit organization world may find helpful. Finally, it will celebrate the goodness of humanity.

We love our work of helping philanthropists of Northwest Georgia and their families with their charitable endeavors. We love working with nonprofit organizations and civic groups and applaud their efforts in serving the communities of the region. We especially enjoy awarding grants to help prepare our children and youth for the future, preserve historic sites, promote arts and culture, help struggling families, and expand greenspaces. Our blog will give us a forum for sharing our many stories of goodwill, service, and community leadership.

Our Blog for Good will be informal – as if I am having a personal conversation with you.

I invite you to join the conversation – leave a comment underneath a post that you find particularly thought-provoking. If you’d like me to weigh in on a certain topic, shoot me an email and suggest the subject, and I’ll add it to the list of blog post topics.

I look forward to sharing with you.
