What is GIVE Atlanta?

Atlanta magazine is proud to bring you Give Atlanta: A Charitable Registry, an opportunity for non-profit organizations to engage with the community, share their story with Atlanta magazine’s loyal audience and raise funds for their organization.

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 non-profit community, profile people who give, and inspire our readers to support many of Atlanta’s philanthropic initiatives.

This year, Atlanta magazine is proud partner with Funraise to host the 2nd annual Give Atlanta Challenge October 16– November 16 giving local charities the opportunity to raise funds online and compete for cash grants and other prizes from the challenge fund. The GIVE Atlanta Challenge is a friendly online fundraising competition between charitable organizations and their supporters.

In 2017, the GIVE Atlanta Challenge distributed over $234K to Atlanta’s non-profit community

Donated products and services will be awarded to the top producing nonprofits during five weekly competitions designed to encourage donations throughout the Challenge.

August 23-24, 2018 – Adoption Angel Lock-In
Are you passionate about saving animals and helping them find their forever homes?? Passionate enough to be locked in a kennel to help the rescues of the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia (HSNEGA)??

Join HSNEGA and be #LockedUpForGood August 23 or 24! Each “penmate” will help raise their rescue’s bail and sponsor a portion or ALL of their adoption fee! HSNEGA is looking for 60 big-hearted “angels” to commit to being “locked-in” a kennel until their “bail” has been raised, with the lowest level being only $250! The goal is to raise $60,000 to support HSNEGA’s rescue/adoption efforts while also shining a light on the number of dogs that need to be rescued each year and acknowledging the unconditional love of our faithful companions.

Interested in being a “penmate”? Email Kyra at now!
