MUST Ministries’ annual Georgia Gives Day campaign is getting a major upgrade as the statewide initiative joins forces with the growing worldwide phenomenon of Giving Tuesday. MUST’s campaign page, where donations will be made, is located here. MUST’s hashtag for the campaign is #lovechangeslives.
From the announcement released by the Georgia Center for Nonprofits:
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 November 28, 2017 alongside a 50-state, 97-country effort as GAgives on #GivingTuesday. Building on the year-over-year achievements both campaigns have amassed since they launched independently in 2012, organizers are looking forward to increasing momentum, resources, and revenue for the thousands of Georgia nonprofits that take part annually.
GAgives on #GivingTuesday falls on the Tuesday that follows Thanksgiving, and the twin retail phenomena of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, answering the public’s appetite to balance holiday “getting” with community “giving,” and kicking off the end-of-year fundraising season for nonprofits. 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. Everyone is invited to give to a cause that matters to them on Nov. 28, and help advance the movement by sharing news of their gift on social media – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and elsewhere – tagged with the phrase #GAgives on #GivingTuesday.
GAgives, also rooted in the Thanksgiving season, has raised more than $13 million in donations for nearly 2,700 Georgia nonprofits since 2012.
