Build Connections With Colleagues

"The Georgia Grantmakers Alliance is the learning community for philanthropy in our state. The meetings provide us with an opportunity to meet with colleagues from the big and small places across Georgia - because our connections need to be deeper than virtual. Being together for a few hours like this allows us to connect in a lasting way."

Explore Statewide Issues

"The daylong program offered by GGA allows us to  address a central theme and drill down deeper for a more thorough investigation. The discussion leads to a more thoughtful response to needs and opportunities and helps us ask more meaningful questions."
