With the creation of The Atmore Community Foundation, an affiliate of The Community Foundation of South Alabama, local community leaders have found the perfect way to make a lasting impact on the citizens of Atmore.
By working with The Community Foundation of South Alabama, members can focus on raising funds and deciding charitable use for the income of the community fund while relying on the Foundation to handle the administration, investment and required daily tasks. Through a concerted grant-making effort, the effects of the community fund can be felt for generations to come. An advisory committee of Atmore residents make recommendations about how the charitable dollars are spent, and The Community Foundation of South Alabama bears the legal responsibility to ensure that the funds are then used in compliance with donor intent.
