After 4 years and $1 million mobilized to meet Athens’ most pressing needs, we’re expanding this program to Atlanta in 2020 beginning in DeKalb County. Why? Because good companies are good citizens, but not all corporate philanthropy channels its resources where they matter the most.
The win? Altruistic businesses can feel confident their philanthropic dollars are concentrated around the community’s greatest disparities, and the agencies doing the heavy lifting can go further faster.
DIY philanthropy is admirable—crucial, even—but aligning the strategies of local organizations is better.
