|EarthShare of Georgia…
…provides the simplest way for businesses to implement “green” business practices quickly.
…creates a vital link between employers, employees and environmental organizations.
…was founded in 1992 by environmental member groups to represent them in the work-place setting through payroll giving programs.
…raises hundreds of thousands of previously untapped dollars to support more than 60 environmental member groups.
…serves as the only statewide organization connecting environmental groups with employees through workplace campaigns in both the public and private sector.
Takes the guess work out of giving to environmental nonprofit organizations. EarthShare of Georgia’s member groups have already been vetted and participate in an annual review to ensure that they adhere to best practices in nonprofit management.
…ensures that member groups are actively engaged throughout the year through opportunities to make campaign presentations, volunteer and participate in EarthShare of Georgia’s annual Earth Day events.
…maintains a low administrative cost of less than 10%, giving at least 90 cents on every dollar raised through employee giving programs to conserve and protect our air, land and water.
…offers exposure to a new support base through at least 70 campaigns that reach nearly 400,000 employees. A recent nationwide study found that only a small percentage (5%) of this audience already donates to EarthShare’s member groups.
