Foundation Celebrates 30th Anniversary

This year the Central Alabama Community Foundation (CACF) is celebrating 30 years since its’ founding in 1987, by a group of civic leaders who had a vision to provide long-term financial support for nonprofit agencies in our community. To commemorate this milestone anniversary, CACF will award 30 surprise grants to local nonprofits. These grants will be awarded over the course of 2017. 

“We decided that a great way to honor the vision of our founders and the ongoing generosity of our donors would be to award 30 surprise grants to 30 nonprofit organizations in Central Alabama. It is our honor to provide the funding to nonprofits doing the work that meets our communities most critical needs,” said Burton Ward, CACF President.
