We build awareness and support for nonprofits.

Through our Georgia Gives Day initiative, we are building a powerful giving movement for our state—raising public awareness of the work and worth of the sector, activating individual donors, and building partnerships that span all sectors. In just five years, Georgia Gives Day has raised more than $13 million for nonprofits across the state. Occurring each November, Georgia Gives Day is a great opportunity to invigorate existing donors, reach new ones and spread the word about your mission via the media spotlight directed at nonprofits around the day.

We speak up for your interests.

The Georgia Center for Nonprofits is a powerful advocate for the nonprofit sector in the local, state and federal legislative process. You can count on us to keep you informed and to lobby in support of policies that strengthen nonprofits, such as the Georgia Center for Nonprofit's ongoing leadership in working to maintain vital nonprofit tax exemptions.  Learn more about our advocacy and policy leadership.
