The Community Foundation for Cobb County is overseen by a local Board of Cobb’s business and community leaders.  We work with individuals and organizations to create endowment funds, which are managed by a team of professional investment advisors. We help donors connect their charitable interests to a variety of important community needs through grants, specific gifts, and scholarships.
