Georgia Gives Day Results
Five years ago, GCN launched an ambitious start-up: Georgia Gives Day, an online giving platform created to spark a statewide giving movement, mobilizing organizations, businesses, government agencies, and citizens to raise awareness and support for our communities’ nonprofits. On November 17, 2016—our state’s fifth annual day of giving—we once again proved the power of the Georgia Gives Day vision and the partnerships that made it possible.
By midnight, we had broken all GA Gives Day records, bringing in $3,897,071, from 19,748 donations, to benefit 2,659 participating nonprofits—making it the biggest day of giving in our state's history! To date, our state's nonprofits have raised more than $12 million. Read CEO Karen Beavor's message, celebrating how far we have come, working together in the spirit of this year’s theme, “Come Together.”
In addition to the excitement and millions raised on each year's Georgia Gives Day, GAgivesday.org serves as a fundraising platform for our state's nonprofits the other 364 days in the year, enabling them to run year-round fundraising and special campaigns through the site at the same low transaction rate.
