    Supporting the Community

    For our current fiscal year (July 1, 2021 through June 30, 2022), the Sandy Springs Society has awarded $263,300 in grants to 32 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 has allowed the SSS to touch lives young and old with philanthropic distributions ranging from as little as $600 to as much as $25,000. The Society is proud of the local impact we have with grants to a variety of Sandy Springs organizations that contribute a tremendous amount of good work every year to improve the quality of life of the residents of Sandy Springs.
