Atmore Community Foundation
Through the Community Foundation of South Alabama’s Affiliate program, the town of Atmore creates the Atmore Community Foundation.
Small Town Decision Creates a Big Impact
“Atmore has not had a vehicle for residents and former Atmoreans to give back to the heart of the community,” committee member Dale Ash said. “The town has been a blessing to so many and even those who have left our little town recognize that their strong roots started here.”
Since the affiliate was established, committee members have dedicated their time and energy to fundraise for future grant-making efforts. Establishing an affiliate through CFSA is no easy feat. It required the committee to raise an initial $25,000 to create a “field of interest” fund, titled the Atmore Community Fund. Since the fundraising efforts began, the members of the committee have exceeded their expectations, raising over $70,000. Real possibilities for the citizens of Atmore can be made possible by these grants. Founded to benefit Atmore in perpetuity, the Foundation will ensure that the Atmore Community Foundation is successful in its attempt to bring new life to the small town.
