How to give

Go to gagives.org and in the search box at the top enter the name of a group to go to its giving page or search for a geographic area for a list of groups.

Multiple nonprofits in Hall County will be taking part in the fifth annual Georgia Gives Day on Thursday.

Georgia Gives Day has drawn $9 million in support for 2,400 organizations from 54,000 donors since its inception in 2012. The statewide online fundraiser “drives awareness and donations for nonprofits across Georgia, encouraging residents to come together for a day of giving,” according to a press release from the Georgia Center for Nonprofits.

The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia will be looking to raise $10,000 for food for the pets it has up for adoption, Executive Director Julie Edwards said. Purina, from which the Humane Society buys food, has agreed to give up to $5,000 in matching food credit.

The Humane Society, which raised about almost $9,000 through Georgia Gives Day a year ago, is calling its efforts the Food Bowl Fund.

“This definitely makes a direct impact on the animals we rescue,” Edwards said.

The group is encouraging donors to give at least $30, which would feed one animal for about a month. Humane Society donors can go to https://www.facebook.com/hsnega/ to link to the organization’s Georgia Gives site from now through Thursday. Edwards said people can also donate in person.

Donors can give to participating nonprofits on gagives.org by picking an organization or searching for nonprofits by geographic areas.

“One of our top goals at GCN is bringing more attention and support to the fantastic work nonprofits do in Georgia — and there are so many worthy local causes to support,” said Karen Beavor, president and CEO of the Georgia Center for Nonprofits in a press release. “Georgia Gives Day makes it easy for people to help their communities thrive with just a few clicks.”

According to survey of 2015 Georgia Gives Day donors, almost 1 in 10 made a first-ever donation to a nonprofit, 14 percent gave to a new nonprofit and 21 percent donated more than they planned to give.
