Dear Friend of the Foundation,

We started the year with a pandemic hitting our local non-profit community hard. Then our community was devastated by a massive EF-4 tornado. To say this year has been trying would be an understatement. However, our response to this disaster reaffirmed that the people and the organizations who call Coweta home are strong, resilient, and willing to work together to weather any storm that comes our way. 

Your gift to the foundation has allowed us to shelter families who no longer had a roof over their heads. It’s helped feed and mentor underserved children so they could focus on education, graduate, and break the destructive cycle their families currently have in place. You’ve provided a hand up to so many struggling with disabilities allowing them access to activity and enjoyment in life. 

This year, when you think of the Coweta Community Foundation, your mind might automatically jump to tornado recovery. Our long-term recovery team is working closely with city and county officials to continue the work of rebuilding our community. While that process is on-going, and estimated to take at least two more years, we don’t want you to forget that our 25-year mission has been to respond to the needs of our community, whatever challenges face us.

The Coweta Community Foundation remains focused on continuing to be the bridge between the over 630 non-profits, large and small, by serving as a conduit for financial assistance through our grant cycles as well as offering educational training on governance, grant writing, and facilitating collaboration between all of these great organizations. Your gift continues to make this possible. 

We want to ask for your continued support of the Coweta Community Foundation and our mission. As you approach budgeting for 2022, we would like you to again consider including the Foundation in your charitable giving. If you have any questions about what we do, who we serve or how you or a member of your team could be involved with the foundation, please feel free to call us at 770-253-1833.

Thank you for your generous support in the past and we look forward to your partnership in the future. Through your generosity, the Foundation is poised to respond to the needs of this community now and in the future.
