The Community Foundation of East Alabama was incorporated in 2007 as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. As a local center for philanthropy, the Community Foundation works with individuals, families, corporations, private foundations and nonprofit organizations to help them carry out their charitable objectives and address emerging community issues. Donors to the Community Foundation also benefit from the Foundation's combined assets which greatly reduce investment and administrative fees. Our five county region includes Lee, Chambers, Macon, Russell, and Tallapoosa.

Our Community Foundation is administered by a governing body of East Alabama citizens committed to building a vibrant community foundation. We are one of more than 700 community foundations in the United States whose assets total $50 billion. Through the generosity of people in East Alabama, our community foundation will continue to grow. Through grant making, we look forward to a brighter future by giving back to the place we call home.
