Did you know Georgia has a "Give Day"?
No? Well, we didn't either! But, it turns out November 12, 2015 is "Georgia Gives Day."
Four years ago, The Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN) launched the concept of dedicating a day, or 24 hours, to state-wide online fundraising. The goal was to drive awareness and donations for non-profits around Georgia. And it's worked!In just four short years, Georgia Gives Day has raised more than $5.1 million. Perhaps more importantly, is the fact that 30,000 donors were connected with over 2,000 organizations. This campaign is working wonders as a tool to introduce Georgians to causes close to home that they can in turn support and become involved in.
