Georgia Gives Day Raises Money for Local, Statewide Nonprofits
Several dozen local nonprofit organizations are among the beneficiaries of Georgia’s inaugural statewide online fundraising event Thursday. Georgia Gives Day, a 24-hour flash giving event organized by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, is modeled after similar programs in Seattle and Minnesota that raised more than $15 million. Georgia Gives Day is Thursday, but the website has been accepting donations for several weeks. So far, more than $250,000 has been raised.
