Alice Huffard Richards Fund Environment Grants

We believe in protecting the fragile, natural beauty of the West Georgia Region and raising awareness for the role that each of us as individuals play in the larger environmental community. 

We fund:
Conservation and stewardship of the local region’s natural resources including:
  • River and stream monitoring and activities that help ensure river and stream purity and availability of clean drinking water. This includes removal of trash toxic items from land and waterways
  • Recycling projects and beautification of public space
  • Community education and volunteer and community engagement
