Transforming Communities Program

Spring Fundraiser

The Community Foundation DeKalb County (CFDC) has the privilege of working with many community organizations in our common goal of improving the quality of life in DeKalb County. Some of the organizations we are most passionate about are our nonprofit organizations that work hard every day to serve those needing a little extra help from time to time.

As we have all experienced the lull in the economy and the inflation of everyday items, so too have our nonprofits. At the same time, the demand for their services has greatly increased. Many funders nationwide are receiving more grants and larger asks to help nonprofits make ends meet.

In 2023 CFDC will launch our first spring fundraiser: Give Where You Live DeKalb 2023. This fundraiser will happen from May 1-5, and will support the Foundation’s Community Grantmaking Fund.

Donating to the Community Grantmaking Fund means increasing support to the local nonprofits who support those (women, children, families, veterans, animals, etc.) in the county who desperately need our help.

Please look for our social media posts, and consider donating to help those who live and work in DeKalb County.

Donations can be made May 1 - 5 on our website, in person at our office, or by sending a check to the Foundation (Please add Community Grantmaking Fund on check memo line).
