Support Children’s Miracle Network and Double Your Impact!

Now through December 23, we will be selling ornaments in our branches and online to support the work of Children’s Miracle Network in our community, specifically at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, CMN has raised over $7 billion to help fill those funding gaps, most of it through programs just like this.

If you’d like to chip in with an ornament purchase to be displayed at your local branch, please click here! We’re asking for a suggested $5 donation, but any amount is greatly appreciated. The Georgia’s Own Foundation will match all donations made up to $5,000! When checking out, please mention ‘ornament’ and the branch in which you’d like your ornament to be hung in the notes section.

Thank you for helping us improve what matters!

Georgia’s Own Golf Challenge raises $130,000 for L.E.A.D.

The 12th annual Georgia’s Own Golf Challenge was our most successful outing to date thanks to the incredible generosity of our sponsors, participants, and volunteers! We raised an event-record $130,000 for L.E.A.D., who works daily to empower young men in the city of Atlanta through their Ambassador program. Funds from the Golf Challenge will allow them to reach more young men, deepen their programming, and continue to enhance their new ‘home’, the L.E.A.D. Center for Youth. Sponsorship registration for our 13th annual event is now open and we currently have a wide selection of packages available. Click here to view the event page and secure your spot today!

#GoldTogether For Childhood Cancer: Double Your Impact!

Did you know that one in 266 children will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of twenty? September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and we have partnered with the American Cancer Society’s Gold Together initiative to help raise funds that will fuel critical research, education, advocacy, and vital services for children battling cancer.

Will you help us join the fight? Now through September 30, the Georgia’s Own Foundation will match all donations made up to $5,000, so you can have double the impact! For more information on what it means to #GoldTogether, click here, and to donate today, click here!

Smart Lunch, Smart Kid is back!

We are excited to announce that this June we are once again partnering with Hope Atlanta (formerly Action Ministries) to raise money for the Smart Lunch, Smart Kid initiative. Each year, over one million children in Georgia lose access to lunch when school lets out for the summer, and this program seeks to close that hunger gap.

A $5 donation will feed a child lunch for two days and will be delivered directly to the neighborhoods in need; avoiding the very real transportation barrier. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for SLSK -enough to provide 6,000 lunches to children in our community- and we would love your help in making that a reality! If you’re able to give, please click here.

This is one of the most impactful initiatives we do throughout the year and we couldn’t do it without your support, so thank you!
