It’s National Give OUT Day, and there’s a plethora of LGBT-related organizations to support across the nation, the Southeast and locally in the Peach State.
Give OUT Day is the only organized national day of fundraising for the LGBT community. Since its inception in 2013, more than 23,000 donors contributed $3 million-plus to hundreds of organizations and nonprofits in the US and Puerto Rico.
This year, some organizations are upping the ante to encourage donations. Georgia Equality, for example, emailed supporters late last week with an announcement of matching donations up to $25,000.
Donors can visit the official Give OUT Day to find groups, or visit the links below for Georgia organizations participating.
