Early Child Development

We believe that access to extraordinary educational opportunities from birth is critical for the health and happiness of the children of West Georgia and the communities in which they will live and work. We prioritize grants that impact children from birth through age four. 


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 believe in honoring the legacy of Alice Huffard Richards by investing in the development of strong leaders in our West Georgia communities.
