We understand the invaluable contributions that non-profits make to our community, and we believe that by providing this financial support, we can help amplify their efforts and drive positive change.

The Community Foundation of East Alabama is dedicated to nurturing the growth of our local non-profits, recognizing that they are the foundation of positive community change. We know that operational expenses can affect a nonprofit’s ability to provide more direct services to the people it serves.
