In 2015, the Cobb Community Foundation and Cobb County created a partnership to encourage the creation of new programs and the expansion of existing ones which impact quality of life in Cobb County. Cobb Community Foundation administered the competitive grant process and the County provided the funding for the grants.
As a result of the generosity of our community, on April 26, 2019 we awarded $100,000 in Cobb Community Impact Grants (“CCIG” or “Impact Grants”) ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 each to Cobb county non-profits. Click here for a list of applicants and recipients.
The video below highlights the impact made from Cobb Community Impact Grants for grant recipients, YMCA, Ser Familia and PALS .
Rather than being dependent on what dollars the County may provide, we now provide a way where businesses (Funding Agreement for Organizations), families, and individuals (Funding Agreement for Individuals) can come together to ensure that Cobb Communities Impact Grants will continue to be available, both now and into the future (Funding Options).
