Giving back to the Sandy Springs Community since 1988
The Sandy Springs Society is a charitable organization of women that was founded in March 1988 to support programs that improve the quality of life for the residents of Sandy Springs. Through its yearly grant process, the organization supports Heritage Sandy Springs and other non-profits in the community that promote the arts, heritage, education, the environment and social services.
- The Sandy Springs Society raises money for its grants through fundraisers, corporate and foundation sponsorships, membership dues and other contributions.
- To date, the Society has awarded grants of over $3 million.
- The Sandy Springs Society is a 501(c)(3) organization.
Supporting the Community
For our current fiscal year (July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2018), the Sandy Springs Society has awarded $206,500 in grants to 22 nonprofit organizations serving our community. Our grants process is competitive, and our all-volunteer Philanthropy Committee conducts site visits to all applicants and reviews applications and supporting materials. Annually we receive requests that total more than 150% of available funds.
This process, which is entirely done electronically, has allowed the SSS to touch lives young and old with philanthropic distributions ranging from as little as $800 to over $74,000 dollars. The Society is proud of the local impact we have with grants to a variety of notable Sandy Springs organizations that contribute a tremendous amount of good work every year. Funds from the Society have supported Riverwood & Ridgeview Charter Schools along with North Springs High School Foundation, Sandy Springs Mission as well as Everywoman Works, Horizons Atlanta, Watershed Alliance & Chattahoochee Riverkeepers to name a few. Each year the Philanthropic Committee reviews applications that have a significant impact on the quality of life of the residents of Sandy Springs.
