The Cobb County Employees’ Friendship Club is an organization that cares about its community. Since its founding in 1972, Cobb County employees have donated more than $2.5 million to charitable organizations.

The club will accept requests for funding July 20-31. In order to receive funding, each organization will be required to submit the following information:

  • Completed grant application form
  • Current audited financial statement OR bank statement
  • Letter of determination from the IRS that grants your organization non-profit, tax-exempt status.
  • IRS Form 990, which shows: charitable purpose, accomplishments, revenue and expenses, balance sheet, along with officers, directors, key employees and their compensation.

When returning your information, please make certain your request contains the amount of funding you are requesting and a detailed explanation of how your organization plans to use the funds. Supplying this information is vital to fully review your request. Unfortunately, late or incomplete submissions will not be eligible for funding.

Please email complete application prior to midnight July 31 to [email protected].

Due to current COVID-19 guidelines, there will not be a public allocations ceremony this time around. Grant recipients will be notified via email on Aug. 14, and a check will be mailed to the provided address.
