As anyone in the nonprofit world knows, December doesn’t just mean the holidays; it means major fundraising time. According to a study by Network for Good, one-third of charities’ online donations are made in December and 22 percent of online gifts are made in the last two days of the year.

So in this season of giving, I want to take a moment to thank those who have already given to us this year. Thank you to the law firms, corporations, foundations and bar sections that make generous contributions to us each year to keep us operating. We’ve listed all those that have given so far this year on our newsletter. I want to highlight two recent gifts – $30,000 from the GE Foundation, one of our founding supporters, and $50,000 from the UPS Foundation (see article below). Thank you also to all of the individuals that have made gifts to us already, including many of our volunteer attorneys, clients, Board members and Advisory Committee members. Several of you gave to us by participating in the first Georgia Gives Day. We raised over $3,000 on that one day alone.

I would also like to remind everyone else that you can donate on our website at www.pbpatl.org anytime, including through December 31. Thank you for your support!
