MONTGOMERY, AL – The Central Alabama Community Foundation (CACF) is excited to partner with the City of Montgomery and the Montgomery County Commission to announce Give Smart Montgomery. Give Smart Montgomery provides a simple, safe and effective way for the community to address growing concerns about panhandling in Montgomery.
This initiative will award grant monies to local nonprofits with proven track records that deliver meaningful assistance to individuals struggling with chronic homelessness, mental health challenges, and/or substance abuse. It is not the intent of this initiative to discourage heartfelt response to need, but rather to help ensure that your generosity can effectively address the underlying causes of panhandling. If you wish to give go to cacfinfo.org/give-smart-montgomery/ or text GIVEMGM to 44321.
Grant applications open on August 1, 2022, and this will be a rolling applications process with no set end date. Nonprofit organizations providing programs or projects that address the categories of homelessness, mental health and/or substance abuse in regard to panhandlers are encouraged to apply. The maximum current award is $2,500.
To apply go to cacfinfo.org/grants/.
