Thank you for your generosity - $38,665 raised this GAgives

From all of us at the IRC in Atlanta, we would like to say a huge and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who donated to our GAgives on #GivingTuesday campaign! Thanks to your generous support, we exceeded our goal of raising $35,000 from individuals in the month of November and collectively raised an impressive $38,665, with gifts still coming in!

Special thanks to The John and Teresa McLean Family Fund for their generous matching gift and helping us to kick-off the campaign strong, and to our friends at Raging Burrito for hosting us for a #GivingTuesday dinner and donating a generous 15% of proceeds towards our fundraising goal.

The support of our Atlanta community is more important than ever. We continue to welcome 1,000 newly arriving refugees each year to safe new homes in Georgia in addition to providing essential services and programs to over 4,000 new American neighbors who already call our state home.

Funds raised for #GivingTuesday will provide:
