Placeholder Image

The Newton Fund, a local fund of The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, will accept letters of intent for grant funding until Oct. 2.

Grants up to $5,000 for a 12-month period will be awarded through a competitive process to help qualified nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations meet the changing needs of the Newton County community.

In order to qualify for a grant, local nonprofit organizations must be located and providing services within Newton County.

The Newton Fund has redesigned its grant program for 2009 and will give both program/project and general operating support to sustain organizations as they pursue their missions. In this new process, applicants must complete a two-page letter of intent to apply for grant funding by Oct. 2. After all letters are reviewed, select organizations will be invited to submit a final application.

Nonprofits interested in funding should visit to access important application materials, including letter of intent. For more additional information or questions, contact Jasper Tanner at
