Celebrating the Impact of Nonprofits and Volunteers in Georgia

Five success stories from nonprofits in Georgia.


Morgan McKeever

Every day, volunteers across the globe are pointing their time and 9-5 skills to nonprofits who are looking for behind-the-scenes operational support.

To facilitate that connection between volunteers and nonprofits, Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta has partnered with Catchafire. Since the start of our partnership with CFGA in 2020, over $3.8 million has been saved by local organizations thanks to so many talented volunteers giving their time and talent.

Below are 5 of those remarkable projects and calls featuring Georgia-based nonprofit organizations.




Atlanta Rescue Dog Cafe


Atlanta, Georgia

Atlanta Rescue Dog Cafe is a non-profit dedicated to the well-being of the community's pets and its people.

"Tad has been incredible to work with. As soon as we started collaborating on this project, he immediately took the initiative to research our org, website, and social media profile. He "got" our mission and the branding we were hoping to achieve. He went so above and beyond what we aimed to accomplish with this project, and we're already planning another one together. His talent, creativity, and responsiveness are second to none. Highly Recommend." -Aaron F., Founder and CEO

"Catchafire has been a lifesaver for our organization. We have had many challenges this year and had to adapt quickly to changing needs. As a result, time became more limited. This resource could not have come at a better time for us. We had to cancel two fundraising events because of COVID-19. We posted several projects and worked with professional volunteers who helped us create engaging content for three fundraising campaigns; create visually engaging email templates; and ad copy. We also had a volunteer create our very first infographic which was key in telling our story to the community. We have had lots of positive feedback on this and will now have one every year. The volunteers have all been professional and beyond anything we could have accessed on our own. We have even stayed in touch with one of the volunteers long past the project." -Vanessa W., Executive Director

.

Supply Our Students, Inc. is a non-profit organization that believes educational equity is one path towards a more just society.

"The GSO is so very grateful for the many projects we have completed through Catchafire to date. Each and every volunteer we've been privileged to work with has been so professional and so willing to help. We've even gained a fantastic board member through his work with us in updating our strategic plan and he has led our organization's crisis action planning efforts in response to COVID-19 and the shutdown of our in-person events. Because of having access to Catchfire, we have been able to engage in projects we would not have been able to do otherwise, due to budget and staffing." -Pat T., Development director
