We build awareness and support for nonprofits.

Through our GAgives on #GIvingTuesday 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. Since our launch in 2012, GAgives has raised more than $20 million for nonprofits across the state. Occurring each #GivingTuesday, (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving),  GAgives presents a unique opportunity to invigorate existing donors, reach new ones, and spread the word about your mission via the media spotlight and social media buzz directed at nonprofits around the day.
