1). Improving the quality of life for the citizens of Atlanta

2). Preserving the rich history of Atlanta

3). Enhancing the future quality of life for persons and businesses in Atlanta

If your organization is interested in submitting a proposal for the specific use of these grant funds, please complete the enclosed application and return it no later than March 20, 2017. Priority will be given to ideas that incorporate matching funds to accomplish the project. Additional terms and conditions are found in the attachment to this letter. Grants will be awarded on by or before April 15, 2017.

The Atlanta Betterment Fund established the Endow Atlanta program in 2012, with a goal of raising at least $100,000 by the end of 2015. To date over $125,000 has been donated or pledged. The Endow Atlanta program is administered by the Illinois Prairie Community Foundation on behalf of the Atlanta Betterment Fund.

We urge all those receiving this letter to apply for an Atlanta Betterment Grant and join us in improving the community of Atlanta.
