ECF's First Grant Recipients

The Emerald Corridor Foundation is devoted to improving quality of life for residents in northwest Atlanta, and one of the ways we do so is through our grant program, which supports the civic institutions that form the foundation of a vibrant and healthy community. We specifically seek out organizations focused on education, workforce training and development, environmental restoration and enhancement, recreation, arts and culture, and community development.

We received many applications for the third quarter 2015 application period, and are proud to have awarded grants to:

Chattahoochee Riverkeeper River Rendezvous which will engage the community to help collect water samples throughout the watershed to take a one day “snapshot” of water quality in Proctor Creek.

Paradise Missionary Baptist Church and Grove Park Neighborhood Association –Jubilee Celebration which will celebrate the church being in the community for 50 years.

Emory Urban Health Initiative and Northwest Youth Power – Vine City Teaching Garden, a space that will help increase access to nutritious, diverse foods and educational opportunities for residents of the Proctor Creek area.
