Announcing the Building Community Network Class of 2013
On Nov. 19, the Georgia Center for Nonprofits and The Home Depot Foundation inducted 20 Atlanta-area nonprofits into the Building Community Network Class of 2013 at Piedmont Park. The Class of 2013 joins nearly 150 alumni that have participated in Building Community Network in prior years. At the end of the day, each organization also received a surprise $20,000 donation from The Home Depot Foundation.
“Building Community Network is a great example of a foundation using the respect and partnership it has earned to think bigger and make a larger impact on the community in which it is headquartered. The Foundation is moving beyond just being a grantmaker,” said Karen Beavor, president and CEO of the Georgia Center for Nonprofits. “GCN is so pleased to continue our long-time relationship with The Home Depot Foundation to bring thought leadership to the community and great value to the nonprofits we serve.”
“Atlanta is a strong, vibrant community because of the nonprofit organizations that dedicate their work to improving the city and lives of its residents,” said Kelly Caffarelli, president of The Home Depot Foundation. “It takes great vision and a lot of hard work to create and sustain innovative, impactful programs, and we thank our 2013 Class for the meaningful impact they are making on our community. We hope their participation will foster new relationships that will enhance their work and welcome them to the Building Community Network family.”
