The Seeds of Change Society

The Seeds of Change Society began planting the seeds of change in 2011. The funds raised by this group help cultivate change by planting opportunities to grow skills that support women and families to improve their possibilities for economic empowerment through our Budget for Life program.

April 2025

This April, our Seeds of Change Society held its annual luncheon, and it was a day full of celebration!

Not only did we surprise several of our Budget for Life ™ program participants with a $1,000 Extra Wish, we also showed the critical needs our Seeds of Change Society meets for struggling families in our community.

AND more than $50,000 was raised for our programs and will fund more Extra Wish awards!

We appreciate each and every one of these of our sponsors who made this event possible and are supporting our Budget for Life™ program all year long! Special thanks to our corporate sponsor, First Horizon Bank, for coming again this year to help celebrate the work BCM Georgia does in our community.
