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.
Our Get Comfortable 2021 RFP closed on Friday, October 23rd. Our 2021 partners will be announced on December 10th, 2020, and our launch event will take place on February 10th, 2021.
