About the Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation

The Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation is a local center for philanthropy.  The Foundation works with individuals, families, corporations, private foundations, and non-profit organizations to carry out their charitable objectives and address emerging community issues.  It was founded in 2006 as an affiliate of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia by a group of citizens interested in encouraging philanthropy and strengthening the community.  Our donors make possible the Foundation’s mission to enhance the quality of life for the people of Barnesville and Lamar county. Lamar Gives 365 is just one of the programs of the Barnesville-Lamar Community Foundation.
