Two successful social campaigns raising awareness and funds for the nonprofit sector are aligning forces, combining Georgia’s biggest day of giving with a growing worldwide phenomenon.

Starting this year, Georgia Gives Day is officially partnering with #GivingTuesday to become their lead organizer for Georgia, re-launching the state’s 24-hour giving marathon on Tuesday, Nov. 28.

Presented by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN), the event will unify the state in an effort to raise as much money and awareness as possible for Georgia nonprofits in a 24-hour period. As in past years, every Georgia nonprofit is invited to create a free ecommerce-enabled profile on the fundraising platform at GAgives.org, where funds raised will go directly to participating organizations.

Bringing together thousands of state charities in one place, GAgives.org makes it easy for Georgians to select a cause that matters to them, learn about the work of individual nonprofits, and donate directly to them.

“Both movements share one purpose: To educate, celebrate and support the diverse causes that strengthen our communities,” said Georgia Center for Nonprofits CEO Karen Beavor. “Our shared success lies in the powerful joy of collaborating with others, teaching the importance of philanthropy, and participating in acts of kindness.”
