Nonprofit Community Assessment for the Athens Area
Philanthropy always plays a critical role in our community. Especially during times of public emergency, private philanthropic support can tremendously help local organizations. At the Athens Area Community Foundation, we encourage donors, nonprofits, and institutions to support organizations that work with those individuals and families who are at risk in our community.
To shape effective responses to community needs through collaboration, we are providing a Nonprofit Community Assessment tool. Many thanks to the Community Foundation of the Chattahoochee Valley for sharing this tool with us as a way to “let nonprofits tell their stories…that will hopefully offer supporters an objective way to assess the developing impact of COVID-19, the ways our nonprofit community is responding, and opportunity for investment in both the short & long term.”
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Any 501(c)(3) organization doing business in the 12-county region (Banks, Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Hart, Jackson, Madison, Morgan, Oconee, and Oglethorpe counties) is eligible to complete the survey.
2. Organizations (preferably executive directors) can complete a survey at any time.
3. It is very important to note that every organization’s information will be listed publicly. Any question can be left blank if the organization doesn’t want it to be public information.
4. Survey results will be posted every Monday, capturing the most recent data available.
