GoodUse partners with nonprofits to create a sustainable future.

After 10 years of phenomenal success with our partners at the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, Southface is thrilled to bring this program in-house, with a new name to match.

GoodUse saves nonprofits money on operations so they can expand their mission. Using technical expertise and consultative assistance, we uncover areas for improvement within the facility to increase resource efficiency and save money on utilities. To make positive changes last, GoodUse helps with project implementation and provides long-term support, ensuring upgrades are delivering results. With lower operating costs, the organizations we work with are empowered to focus on mission-critical initiatives, so they can more effectively realize their vision.
