Get Comfortable is a year-round campaign with a seasonal emphasis—typically in early spring—that operates in two communities: in our hometown of Athens-Clarke County and, as of 2020, in DeKalb County as well. The program infrastructure is the same, but the details are contextualized to each community to ensure the greatest impact.
Seldom do the public, private, and nonprofit sectors come together, compare notes, and execute a unified strategy. But we need one another: we need both the guidance of local leadership and generous businesses to propel social innovation. And we believe this alignment will lead to greater communication, fewer silos, stronger partnerships, less replication, and the concentration of philanthropic resources around our community’s most pressing work.
We are now accepting proposals for Get Comfortable 2021 partners. If you work at a nonprofit agency in Athens or Atlanta and wish to partner with Get Comfortable in 2021, complete the RFP process prior to Friday, October 23rd.
