Capital City Bank Group Foundation – a nonprofit organization created in 1983 by Capital City Bank Group, Inc. – has donated annually for 40 years to charitable institutions across the Capital City footprint in Florida, Georgia and Alabama. During the 2023 grant cycle, the CCBG Foundation reinvested $1,000 into the Gulf County community, awarding a grant to The Safe Place PSJ. 

“Community involvement has been a hallmark of Capital City Bank since our inception in 1895,” said Brandon Armstrong, Capital City Bank president of Gulf County. “We remain dedicated to investing in worthwhile organizations and seize every opportunity to empower local nonprofits and foster positive change in our own backyard.”

The CCBG Foundation provides grants to nonprofits, charitable organizations, and institutions exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The mission of the CCBG Foundation is to invest in initiatives that benefit local communities. Most of the funds are distributed to specific areas of focus, including: arts/culture, children/youth services, economic/community development, education, health/sciences and human services.
