The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta publishes Extra Wish to share unfulfilled needs of nonprofit organizations in the metro Atlanta region. Since its inception 20 years ago, Extra Wish has connected donors to nonprofits that have “extra” funding needs to enhance their daily or programmatic work. Extra Wish funding is intended to support unique and tangible items beyond an organization’s operating budget, those “hard to fund” things that will enhance the organization’s work. Through this program, organizations have received funds for everything from backpacks to snakes, and baby monitors to washing machines. Extra Wish is shared with all of the Community Foundation’s current and planned giving donors, more than 1,000 philanthropists.
Extra Wish provides monetary contributions for specific expenses (not staff or general operations) that contribute in a clear way to the success of organizations and the populations they serve.
Eligible Wish List Requests:
Applicants may apply for funding for up to three unique items. The Community Foundation considers the following example to be three unique items: 10 chairs, two laptop computers and two laptop cases. The Community Foundation would consider the following to be five unique items: 10 chairs and tables, two laptop computers with two laptop cases, and five reference books.
The Foundation seeks to continue to support strong, sustainable organizations. In addition, the Foundation is eager to support smaller or newer nonprofits that hold great promise. Priority for inclusion will be given to organizations or requests that are tied to or further racial equity, and organizations that are led by or serving Black, Indigenous or people of color (BIPOC) communities.
