Community Foundation Awards $1.25 Million in Grants

The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham has announced $1,258,000 in grants to 30 area nonprofits that focus on two Results: “Children are successful along the education pipeline” and “People can lead healthy lives.”  The Community Foundation supports programs and initiatives through discretionary funds entrusted to the foundation by generations of donors.

“I am proud of the tangible impact our donor and nonprofit partners are having in our region every day as they work tirelessly to make a positive difference in our area.  Through these grants we will be able to work together to help some of the most vulnerable areas of our community,” said Chris Nanni president of the Community Foundation.

This is the sixth year of competitive grantmaking using the Community Foundation’s Results Framework, which focuses on grants in line with four key strategies. The grants for Cycle 1 of 2015 focus on two parts of our four-part Results Framework: $415,000 to ensure children are successful along the educational pipeline and $843,000 to ensure people can lead healthy lives.

The Community Foundation unites the power of philanthropy with innovative strategies and connects people from all walks of life to understand community issues and create opportunities for positive, lasting change and improve the life of our region.
