Support the businesses who support Get Comfortable!

How to Serve Your City

In 2015, Creature Comforts established the Get Comfortable Campaign and Fund—stewarded by the Athens Area Community Foundation—in order to become a unifying anchor in the business community to resource the local nonprofits best equipped to address our city’s most pressing needs.

In a sentence, we leverage the resources of our business community and the expertise of our Advisory Committee to resource the agencies best positioned to serve our city.

Based upon the Envision Athens 20 Year Action Agenda, as well as the counsel of our Advisory Committee, we will continue to direct our primary support in 2018 to agencies combating homelessness, hunger, and poverty.

2018 Updates

No longer will Get Comfortable be a 3-month high-intensity season of strategic philanthropy, but it will become our flagship community impact brand and programming—now a year-round campaign with a pronounced season of emphasis, specifically 90 days in the first quarter of 2018.

We believe this shift will:

  • enable us to become more legitimate and sustained partners to the agencies we select;
  • create a more flexible and recognizable brand for philanthropic engagement year-round;
  • facilitate additional fundraising opportunities;
  • and therefore help enhance all aspects of this program’s mission.
