What We Do
What is Alabama Giving doing to encourage philanthropy?
Philanthropy Making a Difference
Alabama Giving helped create the Alabama School Readiness Alliance (ASRA), whose public awareness campaign was instrumental in increasing the state’s funding for preschool sites in Alabama from approximately 4.5 million to just over 20 million in four years. With the support of Governor Riley, legislators, and community leaders, Alabama Giving and other advocates in the nonprofit and business communities have been successful in making high-quality pre-k a continuing priority in Alabama. In the last three years, the Pew Charitable Trust has contributed $365,000 to ASRA in collaboration with Alabama foundations.
