Atlanta magazine’s Give Atlanta program is an opportunity for philanthropic organizations to engage with the community and share their story with an affluent audience.  Atlanta magazine will publish a stand-alone magazine titled Give Atlanta and will polybag it with 50,000 copies of the November issue. The magazine will feature stories on Atlanta’s nonprofit community, profile people who give, and inspire our readers to support many of Atlanta’s philanthropic initiatives. Atlanta magazine is committed to providing nonprofit organizations with a platform to connect with the most influential members of the Atlanta community by producing this custom print publication, along with an online fundraising challenge.


Atlanta magazine is proud to bring back the GIVE Atlanta Challenge in 2019, giving local charities the opportunity to raise funds and compete for cash grants and other prizes from the $40,000 challenge fund. The GIVE Atlanta Challenge is a friendly online fundraising competition between charitable organizations and their supporters.

Beginning October 15, we are asking you, our loyal readers, to make a donation—no matter how large or small—to one or more of the participating nonprofit causes. The nonprofits keep the money they raise through your donations and compete to win additional cash grants totaling to $40,000!

Give Atlanta Stories

Goods that Give Back

Michelle Nunn, CEO of CARE, shares her favorite things that give back to the causes she cares about most.

Creative License: Making the arts accessible and inclusive for all Atlantans

When Woodruff Arts Center's President and CEO, Doug Shipman, greets me on the fourth floor, he’s dressed in a plaid blazer, sneakers, and colorful socks in the style of a cool politician or a millennial tech magnate. It’s a fitting look for someone who both wields immense power and embraces nontraditional priorities, namely to diversify Woodruff Arts Center.

All Eyes on Equity: How nonprofits are mobilizing to solve Atlanta’s structural inequities

In Grove Park, a neighborhood just west of Bankhead, a familiar story is playing out. The first chapter might begin in the 1950s, when black Atlantans first started moving to the neighborhood and white residents tried various tactics—including bombing one black woman’s home—to keep them out.

The Next Generation of Giving

A new class of Atlanta philanthropists and activists tell us why they give, how they’re doing it, and what they’ve learned along the way.

Nonprofit Spotlight: Giving Kitchen

The origin story of nonprofit Giving Kitchen, which supports food service workers in times of crisis, has captured the hearts of Atlanta and beyond since its inception in 2013. Since its founding, Giving Kitchen has been dedicated to providing emergency assistance to food service workers through referrals and financial assistance.

Nonprofit Spotlight: The Empty Stocking Fund

The Empty Stocking Fund has been an Atlanta institution since 1927, after a group of employees from the Atlanta Georgian founded it during the Great Depression. The nonprofit allows parents to “shop” for their children and select gifts from the organization’s toy store every December.

Nonprofit Spotlight: Furkids

Furkids was born out of a need for adoption and no-kill shelter options in the metro Atlanta area after Shelton came across a cat family outside her home in 2001. She started volunteering at a PetSmart in 2002 and organizing adoptions out of the Perimeter store.

Human Clay: Restoration – Benefiting Gateway Center Wednesday, November 13th 2019, 6:00 PM

It is our pleasure to share that Gateway Center’s 7th Annual Human Clay Event presented by White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails will be held on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. For 14 years, Gateway Center is proud to have served and given hope to those experiencing homelessness in Atlanta. Our theme for this year’s event is Restoration!

We are honored that Rev. Dr. Raphael Warnock, Senior Pastor of the Historic Ebenezer Church, will serve as our keynote speaker. Dr. Warnock is committed to Atlanta and has taken on the contradictions in our criminal justice system, public education, health care, HIV/AIDS, and has defended the downtrodden and disenfranchised through his preaching and his fierce public advocacy.

Gateway Center’s mission is to connect people experiencing homelessness with the support necessary to become self-sufficient and find a permanent home. By supporting this event, you will support Gateway Center in raising funds to support our mission and our Five Keys to Success: (1) Health & Wellness, (2) Housing Placement, (3) Job Readiness & Placement, (4) Financial & Adult Literacy, and (5) Family & Community Engagement. By utilizing these Keys to Success, we can achieve our desired impact of making homelessness rare and brief for those plagued by a displaced situation in Metro Atlanta. Funds raised directly support programming including intensive case management, coordinated entry, behavioral health services, substance abuse treatment, job readiness training, food services, and other vital supports.
