Atlanta magazine’s Give Atlanta program is an opportunity for philanthropic organizations to engage with the community and share their story with our engaged audience. These organizations were featured in the October 2020 issue of Atlanta magazine.

Alongside this special highlight of Atlanta’s nonprofits, we are proud to bring back the GIVE Atlanta Challenge for 2020. Participating organizations are nonprofits serving the greater community of Atlanta. This year, Atlanta magazine is proud to partner with Mightycause to host the 4th annual GIVE Atlanta Challenge from October 7th–October 23rd, giving local charitable organizations the opportunity to raise funds online and compete for an abundance of prizes.

From her vantage point, the deadly coronavirus, already tearing through Europe, was a real, if not necessarily immediate, threat to America.
