Back in 2012, 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.
December 12, 2019 – Once again this holiday season, the Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN) joined nonprofits, businesses, media partners, and thousands of individual Georgians to lead a statewide generosity movement: GAgives on #GivingTuesday 2019. In response, our state gave like never before, contributing more than $13.5 million to our state’s nonprofits, an increase of 73% over 2018!
That total includes more than $3.8 million through the official giving portal at GAgives.org, and $9.7 million across two dozen other donation platforms. In addition, the total number of donations – 133,998 – represents a 184% increase over 2018 participation!
Read the full press release here, detailing how efforts great and small played a part in making our 2019 event Georgia’s biggest day of giving yet.
And of course, mark your calendar to participate in our next GAgives on #GivingTuesday event on December 1, 2020.
