AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - The Community Foundation for the Central Savannah River Area has awarded $585,000 in grants to 48 nonprofit agencies.

“Each of these nonprofit agencies meets the pressing and evolving needs of our community and impacts the lives of the individuals they serve across education, youth enrichment, health, the environment, the arts, culture and history, as well as people in need,” the foundation said in a news release announcing the recipients.

The grants are made available through the foundation’s community grants fund, which is primarily supported by the Masters Tournament.
