Each year Georgia United Foundation partners with Georgia United Credit Union to promote its School Crashers ® program which offers Georgia schools the opportunity to apply for a facility makeover.
The school makeover program is designed to unite communities, donors and volunteers to complete and support local improvement projects for deserving schools. One grand prize winner receives a school makeover funded by Georgia United Foundation and runner-up schools receive grants for specific school improvement projects. Over the past six years, the School Crashers program has been nationally recognized and awarded five industry awards for positively impacting communities.
Georgia accredited public or private elementary, middle and high schools are encouraged to apply for a School Crashers makeover during the March submission period.

2019 School Crashers Recipients
Georgia United Foundation is excited to announce the recipients of its sixth Annual School Crashers program. A total of ten schools have been named to receive facility improvements over the summer, with the top recipient awarded to Toney Elementary School in Decatur.
Toney Elementary was nominated by teacher Dr. Karen Dukes. Located at 2701 Oakland Terrace, Toney Elementary was originally built in 1952. The school’s 350 students and 43 faculty and staff members will receive multiple improvements to their learning environment on July 19 and 20, before the new school year in August.
In addition to the top award, five additional schools will receive mini-makeovers to their facility. Enhancements are planned for the playground areas and will include safe areas for children with special needs. Our partner, Mohawk®, has awarded four schools with carpet grants. Each school will receive new carpet in their media centers.
