Atlanta Track Club Foundation, established in May 2021, as a Type 1 supporting organization will support the mission and vision of Atlanta Track Club to create an active and healthy Atlanta. The Foundation will focus its efforts on fundraising in support of the Club's current community programs along with making charitable contributions to like-minded mission driven organizations in the region's health and wellness space.

Ready, Set, Go! Fund

Ready, set, go! charitable contributions will support youth running/walking programs, school cross country/track & field programs and health and wellness non-profit organizations in the state of Georgia. Eligible organizations can apply for support up to $10,000.

In any given year, the Atlanta Track Club Foundation Board will review applications to determine if a series of contributions will be offered as micro-contributions to several organizations or larger contributions to fewer organizations.
