About the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation

The United States government was built upon a strong value of civic engagement. Over time and with increasing technology, civic engagement has changed dramatically. Yet one thing is certain – active and engaged citizens can have a definite impact on all levels of government.

In 2006, ACCG, Georgia’s county association, created the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation to advance civic and community engagement through innovative programs providing diverse opportunities that enhance citizen education, encourage civic engagement and community improvement, and promote participation in county government.

ACCG and works on behalf of county officials and their communities by providing public policy and legislative advocacy, leadership development, civic and community engagement initiatives, insurance and retirement programs that specialize in local government needs and other cost-saving programs. Formed in 1914 when county officials came together to help fund the state’s first highway department, ACCG today serves as a catalyst for advancing Georgia’s counties.

If you or your organization is interested in fostering civic engagement, especially among Georgia’s youth, we invite you to explore the programs offered through the ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation. The ACCG Civic Affairs Foundation is a nonprofit corporation under the laws of Georgia and is recognized as a charitable organization operated exclusively for tax exempt purposes under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
