Community Foundation gives grants to local nonprofits

Betsy Covington, executive director of the Community Foundation of Columbus, said she is glad that Georgia Gives Day that was held Dec. 6 will be an annual event. "It is a wonderful way to help agencies that help people in the community," she said. The first annual Georgia Gives Day was a resounding success, generating state-wide contributions of $782,225 during a 24-hour flash mob of giving, Covington said.
