The Georgia Power Foundation, Inc. recently celebrated 30 years of supporting communities across the state as Georgia Power’s nonprofit, 501(c)3 corporate giving foundation.

Communities In Schools (CIS) started in Georgia and is now the nation’s leading dropout prevention organization and the only one proven to both increase on-time graduation rates and reduce dropout rates. CIS of Rome-Floyd County began in 1993, a collaborative community initiative, and was chartered in 2002. We serve the schools in the Rome City and Floyd County public school systems. The nationwide network of local nonprofits is now serving 1.25 million students in 27 states.  

The Georgia Power Foundation’s support of health and human services, education, environment, arts and culture, and civic and community organizations range from those with a national reach and local presence, such as the American Red Cross, to organizations focused only on Georgia communities, such as Grady Hospital in Atlanta.

“Our longtime partnership with Georgia Power means so much to the Red Cross and the people we serve,” said Terri Badour, CEO, American Red Cross of Georgia said in a press release. “Together, we help families prepare for and recover from all types of disasters in our state and the ongoing support makes a meaningful difference for neighbors in need.”

Since its inception, the Georgia Power Foundation has contributed more than $170 million to over 2,000 nonprofit organizations in Georgia.
