GCN creates thriving communities by helping nonprofits succeed.
Our work revolves around four primary areas of focus. In short, we are:
- A hub for social innovation
- A capacity accelerator for organizations and their people
- Georgia’s largest association of nonprofits and its industry champion
- An influential convenor of changemakers
GCN was formed in 1990 to provide a mechanism for growing social impact by supporting the infrastructure and policy needs of Georgia’s nonprofit industry.
Starting as a project of the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta, GCN is now one of the largest capacity building organizations in the country and a nationally recognized solutions provider for the nonprofit sector.
GCN is the most comprehensive provider of sector-specific solutions and strategy support in the Southeast and the largest association for nonprofits in Georgia.
We serve over 5,000 organizations annually in Georgia alone, and thousands more through our national social enterprise Work for Good. Through GAgives on GivingTuesday, GCN mobilizes hundreds of thousands of donors each year, resulting in more than $120 million raised for Georgia nonprofits to date.
