GCN is the only membership organization of its kind in Georgia, committed to equipping and supporting nonprofits through programs and resources that help navigate our ever-changing circumstances. 


  • Complimentary, member-exclusive learning events featuring thought leaders and top practitioners, such as:

    • Our annual WSB-TV media summit, where the media veterans themselves teach nonprofits how to pitch their stories

    • Regularly-held, consultant-led CEO Forums for discussing top-line challenges with peer leaders in a confidential setting; and

    • Practical webinars to familiarize you with proven, leading-edge solutions for emerging and of-the-moment challenges, from board governance to finance, fundraising, and more.

  • Exclusive webinars, replays, and associated tools for COVID-19-related response and recovery.

  • Access to exclusive scholarship opportunities, presented by Wells Fargo, for three signature GCN programs: Doings Labs, NU Certificate Series, and NU individual courses.

  • Exclusive Member Monthly newsletter, delivering early access to upcoming events, funding opportunity notices, fresh perspectives from experts and peers, and more.

  • 15% off job postings on Work for Good, the national job board exclusively for the nonprofit sector, and our state’s top nonprofit hiring and career resource, run by GCN.

  • Regular opportunities to share your news and achievements through our monthly Georgia Nonprofit NEWS report, social media channels, and content contributor opportunities.

  • Top-shelf customer service and program guidance to meet your needs. 

"The Historic Oakland Foundation has been a member of GCN for over 15 years. During that time our modest investment has paid handsome dividends in what GCN brings to us in resources to strengthen our mission. I also value the networking opportunities GCN provides, whereby we can meet with other non-profits to discuss trends, best practices, and form collaborative partnerships." 

-David Moore, Co-Executive Director, Historic Oakland Cemetary Foundation
