We Surpass $4 Million in Grants to Local Non-Profits!

By raising $151,187 this year we have awarded grants of over $4 million to Sandy Springs nonprofits.  Funds are raised through our fundraisers (notably the Elegant Elf and Tossed Out Treasures events), corporate and foundation sponsorships, membership dues, and other contributions. See the press release HERE for more info.


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 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 $4.49 million.
  • The Sandy Springs Society is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Supporting the Community

For our current fiscal year (July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021), the Sandy Springs Society has awarded $151,187 in grants to 31 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 $800 to over $74,000. 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.
