The Focus Areas:
Children and Education – Initiatives that improve the educational, mental, social, cultural, and health and wellness of children.
Seniors – Initiatives or projects that provide direct services for seniors such as meals, home repair, social and recreational activities, and independent living assistance.
Energy Assistance – Projects that facilitate and offer access to energy assistance, home weatherization activities, and energy-saving repairs for vulnerable individuals and families – especially seniors and the disabled.
Environment/Sustainability – Projects that promote the conservation of natural resources in Georgia through direct activities and education – especially within the residential sector and neglected communities.
"I can't think of a better way to celebrate our 15-year anniversary of serving Georgia than to recognize the state's best nonprofits and the work they do every day to make Georgia a better place to live," says Mike Braswell, president and CEO of Georgia Natural Gas. "We look forward to another great year of applications and a fun celebration."
