The Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN) will host an inaugural statewide day of giving – Georgia Gives Day – on Dec. 6. The purpose of Georgia Gives Day is to bring the state together as one community, to raise as much money and awareness as possible for Georgia nonprofits within a 24-hour, flash mob of giving. One hundred percent of proceeds will go directly to participating nonprofits by donating through www.GAgivesday.org.

“Nonprofits touch nearly every part of our lives,” said Karen Beavor, president and CEO of GCN. “We are very excited to give Georgians an opportunity to truly recognize the nonprofit organizations in their community and give where they live.”

There are more than 1,000 nonprofits who need donations, which can be made at the Georgia Gives website.
