Georgia Gives Day
Georgia Gives Day is an initiative that has been co-created by the nonprofit sector itself. It doesn’t support one cause or one locale – it’s all of us in the state’s nonprofit sector pulling together to ask you to stop and consider your life and your community without nonprofits. How much less connected, less vibrant, less interesting and less supported would our communities be without them? Georgia Gives Day is really about us all – it’s about everyone pulling together to support the organizations and causes right in our own backyards. So, we are asking all Georgians, on November 28, 2017, to give a little and share a little so that, together, we can do a lot for the causes that we all care about. Whether you have $10 or $10,000 to give, it all adds up to greater impact on the issues that support and enrich our lives and make our local communities thrive. For more details, visit the Georgia Gives website.
