Central Alabama Community Foundation
Hill Hill Carter’s Community Spotlight this month is the Central Alabama Community Foundation (CACF) which was established in 1987 by a group of local civic leaders whose vision was to create a permanent charitable foundation to support various opportunities and needs in the Montgomery area.
For over 30 years, Central Alabama Community Foundation has been a valued community partner and resource for nonprofits and students in the River Region and beyond. Through the generous support of individual and corporate donors, the foundation provides over $5 million in grants and scholarships each year that meet diverse community needs, supporting programs and projects in education, human services, health, cultural arts and other civic concerns. The mission is to create a better quality of life for those who live and work in and around Autauga, Coffee, Cullman, Dale, Elmore, Geneva, Henry, Houston, Lowndes, Macon, Montgomery, and Pike Counties. Central Alabama Community Foundation has grown to hold over $65 million in charitable assets while distributing over $55 million in organizations that serve the community.
Most recently, just in time for classes to begin this year, the Central Alabama Community Foundation announced that it awarded $233,800 in scholarships to 154 students in the River Region and Wiregrass, along with 22 grants that total $125,479 to 17 River Region nonprofits that support family wellness projects. “We are grateful to the individuals and organizations that trusted the Central Alabama Community Foundation to manage their scholarship funds,” President Burton Ward Crenshaw said.
