We are thrilled to have welcomed eight new homeowners to the Atlanta Land Trust over the past three months! Key partners in this work include the Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc. and our public sector partners at the Metro Atlanta Land Bank, city of Atlanta and Invest Atlanta. We currently have 12 single-family homes under development and three small multi-unit projects in the planning stages.
We recently celebrated the completion of our inaugural capital campaign through which we raised $14 million, far exceeding our initial goal and allowing us to provide deeper affordability. This is the largest comprehensive effort in the organization’s history to scale housing development with the creation of 90 permanently affordable housing units across three sites in the city of Atlanta—The Trust at Oakland City, The Avenue at Oakland City, and The Trust at East Lake.
ALT is also excited to introduce our first fellow, Tamill Harris.
The work of ALT is made possible through the support of the public, private, and individuals. We’re grateful for the ongoing support of Bank of America and Wells Fargo, both of whom recently announced awards to ALT. Support our work by donating to our 2023 Annual Fund. We now offer multiple ways to contribute to ALT through gifts of stock donations, donor-advised funds, and our monthly giving collective, Groundbreakers. All gifts to ALT are 100% tax-deductible and help us create and steward accessible, quality housing that improves the lives of Atlantans today and for future generations. F
