Welcome to the Sandy Springs Society Grant Application Portal
The deadline for the submittal of 2017 grant applications was January 20, 2017 and we are no longer accepting any more applications. Please check back with us in October 2017 when the Grant Application Portal will reopen for 2018 grants.
In the meantime, the following provides some general information about the Grant Process:
The Sandy Springs Society is dedicated to supporting organizations that benefit primarily Sandy Springs residents with a focus in one of five areas: art, education, heritage, the environment or social services. Since its inception in 1988, the Society has awarded grants to the community totaling more than $3 million dollars.
The following guidelines are intended to help an organization decide if they are a candidate for receiving funds from the Sandy Springs Society:
1. Each applying organization must designate a specific project for which the funds will be used.
2. Funds must be used within one calendar year from the time of distribution.
3. Religious organizations may qualify if they hold a separate 501(c)3 from their sponsoring religious organization.
4. Funds must be directly dispersed to their recipients.
The philanthropy committee will review all projects submitted and select organizations to receive available funds. The application process opens in October, 2017, and closes in late January, 2018. The committee’s recommendations are made to the Sandy Springs Society members and approved at the General Meeting in May 2018. Notifications are made immediately and checks are dispersed in June 2018.
