ATLANTA – Once again this holiday season, the Georgia Center for Nonprofits joined nonprofits, businesses, media partners, and thousands of individual Georgians to lead a statewide generosity movement: GAgives on #GivingTuesday 2019. In response, the state gave like never before, setting another state record for generosity: more than $13.5 million was donated to the state’s nonprofits, an increase of 73% over 2018.

That total includes more than $3.8 million through the official giving portal at, and $9.7 million across two dozen other donation platforms. In addition, the total number of donations – 133,998 – represents a 184% increase over 2018 participation.
