“Whether you know it or not, you live your life in nonprofits.” Georgia Gives Day
Georgia Gives Day is an initiative created by GA’s nonprofit sector. The nonprofit sector pulls together and asks you to consider your life and your community without nonprofits. So, instead of supporting one cause or locale, Georgia Gives Day supports the state’s nonprofits. This year’s event happens on November 13th. You’ll have an opportunity to support the organizations and causes in your own community and across the state. 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.
Georgia Gives Day is a collaboration of the the Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN) in partnership with participating nonprofits, state agencies, corporations and businesses, associations, foundations and public relations and advertising firms.
And, succeed they did! The inaugural Georgia Gives Day in December 2012 raised more than $900,000 from more than 7,700 individual donors. This year, organizers at the Georgia Center for Nonprofits hope to draw more than 10,000 individual donations in a “flash mob day of giving” during the Nov. 13 Georgia Gives Day. Thanks to GCN, finding a cause or charity and making a donation is easy at www.gagivesday.org.
Today I received an email from Girls Inc. of greater Atlanta. I love that they encourage supporters to become fundraisers for the organization and provide a link!
The organization reminds supporters to share on social media by using the hashtags #GIGA1113 and #GAGivesDay.
Do you have any suggestions on how to take advantage of this great opportunity? We’d love to hear!
