Stand with Refugees this #GivingTuesday, Dec. 3

Last updated 

Please save the date to support the IRC in Atlanta for GAgives on #GivingTuesday – December 3, 2019 – and join the global giving movement to support nonprofits and raise awareness of the causes that matter to you!

The IRC in Atlanta is committed to raising $40,000 in just 24 hours to ensure the almost 4,000 refugees and immigrants we serve annually continue to have access to our vital, life-changing programs and assistance, and we need your help to reach this goal!

This year, the IRC in Atlanta is celebrating our 40th anniversary. Since opening our doors in 1979, we have welcomed more than 27,000 refugees from 67 countries to rebuild their lives in communities across Georgia. And while it has been the work of exceptional staff and volunteers to guide these newcomers through this transition, it is really the whole community – including you – that has made this possible.

Donate to the IRC in Atlanta this GAgives on #GivingTuesday and together we will continue to build our community and strengthen our great state. Thank you sincerely for standing with us and the people we serve.
