Where does the money go?

The Hogansville Hummingbird Festival, 2017 being its 20th year, is the principal fund-raising vehicle for the Hogansville Charitable Trust, a 501(c) 3 Georgia non-profit corporation whose stated purpose is the renovation, preservation and improvement of historic and municipal properties in and around the City of Hogansville, Georgia.

The Festival has raised in excess of $325,000 for this purpose. However, by using these dollars primarily as matching funds for Federal, State and other grants, the money has been leveraged into more than $3,000,000 in improvements for the City.

The projects have included renovations of the historic Royal Theater, now used as Hogansville’s City Hall, three phases of StreetScapes and construction of the Tower Trail which includes a walking trail from Hogansville Elementary School, by the historic Water Tower, and ending on Oak Street by the City’s now retired water treatment plant, and an outdoor classroom. In 2016, the Charitable Trust purchased land in the center of downtown, which has since been donated to the city and named Askew Park. This preserves greenspace for our beautiful historic downtown.

In addition, the Festival has donated to such charities as the American Red Cross’ Katrina Relief Fund, the Shriners Hospital, the Boys and Girls Clubs of West Georgia, “Breast Friends for Life,” a Troup County support group for breast cancer patients, Hogansville’s GED program, and “God’s Bread Basket,” Hogansville’s Food Bank.
