Voting Underway For Annual Charter Foundation Grants



Again this year, there will be five Charter Foundation grants in each area (Troup, LaGrange, Hogansville, West Point, and Chambers County). This will be a total of $50,000. The top five in each region will receive $5,000 each as voting is currently underway.


There is no restriction on voting. Only for organizations in one area. All of the organizations are on a single ballot so you can vote for any of the organizations listed. The organizations are grouped by region, but again, you can vote for anyone. There will still be five awards to Troup/LaGrange and five to West Point/Chambers.



The Charter Foundation uses its resources to improve the quality of life within the Troup County, Georgia & Chambers County, Alabama communities. We seek to assist non-profit organizations and programs that are working to improve our communities in thoughtful, creative, and meaningful ways.
