Our Grant Process

Each year, the Philanthropy Committee reviews dozens of grant requests from non-profit organizations that serve the Sandy Springs community. Organizations that promote heritage, education, the arts, social services and the environment are considered.

Grants are awarded only to 501(c)3 organizations.

The following criteria must be met:

  • Organizations must be non-partisan and secular.
  • Organizations with religious affiliations may qualify only if they hold a separate 501(c)3 from their sponsoring religious organization.  All requests must be non-secular.
  • Grants must be used within twelve months from time of distribution.
  • Grants must be used solely for the project as stated in the acceptance letter.


Since its inception, the Society has awarded grants in the amount of over $4.5 Million.
