Training Dollars Available for Nonprofits

Macon County Legacy members eligible to apply beginning Feb. 28

Macon County – Starting Monday, Feb. 28, Macon County Legacy nonprofit members are eligible to apply for up to $2,000 in Microgrants per organization to help fund professional development programs. Deadline to apply is Thursday, March 31, and selected nonprofit organizations will receive their individual grant awards April 12.

“Nonprofit organizations often struggle to find budget dollars to provide professional development opportunities for their staff and board members – even though this area is vital in helping the organization excel. This targeted funding can help make it happen,” says Director of Strategic Grantmaking Tony Holly of The Community Foundation of Macon County (CFMC).  CFMC and the Lumpkin Family Foundation jointly fund these annual awards. 

The application, available at, takes just a few minutes to complete. Microgrants may be used for these expenses:

  • Conference registration and associated travel costs
  • Course enrollment
  • Board development
  • Webinars
  • Workbooks/books/toolkits
  • Online resources
  • Customized training
