Give DeKalb County Reaches All-Time High

Organizations throughout local communities have begun receiving the funds raised during Give DeKalb County. This philanthropic event is coordinated by the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP), which is a program of the DeKalb County Community Foundation.

Give DeKalb County reached all-time highs in terms of total donors, total donations, number of participating organizations, grand total, and other categories.

“The support from donors through Give DeKalb County was remarkable,” said Ben Bingle, director of DCNP. “An event like this emphasizes the strength and resilience of community, the selflessness and generosity of donors, and the importance and impact of nonprofit organizations. We’re grateful for everyone who helped make Give DeKalb County a success this year despite all odds.”

This was the seventh year of the annual giving day. Due to COVID-19, walk-in donations were cancelled and mail-in donations were accepted. Donations were also accepted through the website www.GiveDeKalbCounty.org on May 7.
