The 20 for 20 program is a continual giving program that will allow people to make a difference in Carroll, Heard and Haralson counties forever.
What is “20 for 20”?
“20 for 20” is an initiative introduced by the Community Foundation of West Georgia to encourage donors to pledge contributions of just $20 per month for 20 months. Each donor’s $20 joins with many other donations and becomes many thousands of dollars for grants that will enhance the quality of life for thousands of people in Carroll, Haralson and Heard counties.
What am I contributing to?
Each month your $20 goes directly into the Foundation’s Community Impact Fund, which distributes annual grants to local organizations, supporting human service, arts and culture, environmental, economic development, education, medical and hospice programs. “20 for 20” donations can truly change the world around us with an impact that lasts a lifetime because this endowed fund continuously grows and gives back to the community forever. Since it’s first grants were issued in 2004, a total of $2,654,000 has been distributed, truly changing the lives of people in Carroll, Haralson and Heard counties.
What do I have to do?
“20 for 20” is an automatic deduction program, so once you sign up there is no monthly check to write. Just enjoy knowing that your monthly donations are making a difference in your community!
