About Us

Believing that a vibrant arts culture is vital to a thriving community, the FCAA enriches the arts through strategic support and financial stewardship.

Since our inception, the FCAA has awarded over $500,000 in grants and scholarships (the latter through student scholarship endowments established by the FCAA at the University of North Georgia and Lanier Technical College for students from Forsyth County majoring in the arts).

North Georgia Community FoundationIn 1985, a group of community leaders began the North Georgia Community Foundation. The Community Foundation now serves 15 counties in North Georgia, encouraging philanthropy and giving donors a way to improve the quality of life in our region for this and future generations. The North Georgia Community Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the spirit of community and quality of life in the greater North Georgia region by building, preserving and distributing philanthropic assets.
