December 2, 2019 - The state’s biggest day of generosity each year is GAgives on #GivingTuesday – and it’s coming up again on Dec. 3.

Alongside a range of corporate, foundation, civic, and media partners, the Georgia Center for Nonprofits (GCN) organizes GAgives on #GivingTuesday to drive awareness and donations for the Georgia-based nonprofits working tirelessly for positive, lasting change. Since its founding in 2012, the GAgives movement has rallied 160,000 supporters and raised more than $28 million for thousands of Georgia’s nonprofits.

And each year, GAgives gets bigger: Last year’s total haul of $7.8 million represented a 15% increase over 2017. Nearly $3.4 million of that came in through, the official online fundraising platform launched and maintained by GCN, which gives every registered nonprofit in the state free tools for promoting their organization and receiving donations.

GAgives corporate partners are providing incentives to help raise awareness and drive higher levels of giving for nonprofits registered on Sponsored by Fifth Third Bank, this year’s general leaderboard prize is open to all participating nonprofits. Fifth Third Bank Leaderboard prizes will be awarded to the top 3 nonprofits that net the highest number of donors on GAgives day.
