Since 2012, the annual GAgives campaign has raised more than $28 million from 160,000 gifts, all directly benefiting 3,000 nonprofits across the state. Led by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, the GAgives initiative welcomes every Georgia-registered nonprofit to participate, whether they raise funds through GAgives.org, the online fundraising platform hosted by GCN, or another donation platform.
This unique, all-online fundraising initiative is fueled by a large statewide coalition of corporations and foundations, government officials, media partners, and volunteers. Beyond the very important dollars raised, GAgives provides a special high-profile day each year to bring attention of the work and worth of Georgia's nonprofit sector as a whole in making the state a great place to live, work and play.
Each year, GCN provides training opportunities, resources, tools, communications, and an online forum to support nonprofit campaign planning. We also rely on the generosity of our partners – from corporate and foundation sponsors to creative and media partners – to field the annual campaign that raises awareness and support for nonprofits.
