Share your ideas for bettering the Macon community at On the Table


MACON, GA — The Community Foundation of Central Georgia, with funding from the Knight Foundation, will lead On The Table, an initiative that invites residents to discuss how to improve the community.

On The Table started five years ago in Chicago by the Chicago Community Trust. It has been replicated across the country.

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has assisted with the growth of the initiative. The foundation is not only funding Macon’s Wednesday event, but it is sponsoring it in nine other cities.
