The Brighter DeKalb Foundation will be participating in the 5th annual Georgia Gives Day on November 17, 2016, in an effort to raise funding to serve individuals receiving behavioral health and developmental disability services provided by the DeKalb Community Service Board (CSB).
The mission of Georgia Gives Day is to inspire individuals to donate to participating nonprofits with the goal of raising as much money as possible within a 24-hour period. GAgivesday.org makes donating easy by organizing hundreds of nonprofits across the state onto one website, providing the information people need to select a cause or charity of their choice, and enabling online donations by credit card or e-check.
