Nonprofit Regional Membership
Introducing GCN's new regional membership opportunity, exclusively for nonprofit organizations outside of the Metro Atlanta area.
The cost is $250 to receive face-to-face trainings, webinars, our digital publications, and access to all of GCN’s online resources. We want to share our knowledge, tools, and resources with more nonprofits using a regional membership serving our first five hubs around the state – Augusta, Columbus, Macon, Brunswick and Savannah.
What makes Georgia communities thrive? The answer is at the heart of GCN’s work: it drives our strategy and programs. We know that when nonprofits get smarter, stronger, and more sustainable, bigger results happen.
GCN Nonprofit Regional Membership might be for your nonprofit, delivering affordable access to programs and tools that make you more effective in your community. Together, we can Ignite Possible.
