Georgia Gives Day
Mark your calendars for December 6, 2012. That’s Georgia Gives Day – an initiative of the Georgia Center for Nonprofits in collaboration with participating corporations, associations, foundations, public relations and advertising firms, and nonprofits across the state.
The website, gagivesday.org, describes the event as “an effort to empower nonprofits to deliver greater impact and enhanced services in our communities by increasing individual philanthropic giving in Georgia and raising awareness of the state’s nonprofit sector. Georgia Gives is a statewide initiative that focuses the attention of the public on the work and worth of nonprofits.”
The website will provide information about registered nonprofits and who they serve in their communities. The site will also facilitate donations by making it possible to give using your credit card or echeck.
Although donations will be accepted on the website at any time, Georgia Gives Day will help focus attention on charitable giving and encourage the public to be part of a statewide day of support for local organizations.
In order to be included on the Georgia Gives website, nonprofits need only register. Being included is free and open to all state registered Georgia-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) organizations.
