"We are a region of contrasts," Frank Fernandez, president and CEO of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "A region that has a lot of great opportunity. But also, a region where that is just not equally distributed."

That's why the 71-year-old foundation, which has given more than $140 million to more than 400 nonprofits, has launched TogetherATL, a five-year plan designed to ensure "every resident in the Atlanta metro region has a fair shot at a decent life," Fernandez tells the Journal-Constitution.

TogetherATL will focus on two categories: "placed-based" and "systems change."

The latter focuses on issues like affordable housing, voting rights, and equity in the arts, while the former focuses on issues like racial and social justice.

The foundation says it picked three areas in the Atlanta area; Thomasville, South Cobb, and South Fulton, out of 166 neighborhoods to focus on as part of TogetherATL.

The application process opened June 1, and nonprofits can apply at the link below. Read the Entire Article
