Give DeKalb County is now open for nonprofit registrations. Donors can give online from the stroke of midnight until the end of the day on May 5, 2022. Between April 21 and May 5, groups who prefer to donate by check can print a donation form from the website and donate by mail.
This annual fundraising event, coordinated by DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP), features multiple ways to support nonprofit organizations. The previous eight giving days combined have raised over $5.3 million for participating nonprofit organizations.
“Give DeKalb County is an exciting event for donors and nonprofits alike,” said Ben Bingle, Grants, and DCNP Director. “Last year, we saw an outpouring of support from donors who gave more than $1.5 million by mail and online. We’re excited for what 2022 will bring, and we look forward to witnessing extraordinary generosity through Give DeKalb County once again.”
