Give DeKalb County is coordinated by the DeKalb County Nonprofit Partnership (DCNP), a program of the DeKalb County Community Foundation. The previous giving days combined have raised more than $6.9 million for participating nonprofit organizations.

Each year, a Bonus Pool of dollars is raised and each donation made during Give DeKalb County is boosted by a percentage of these funds. The Bonus Pool is made possible from the generous support of Community Partners.

Awareness for Give DeKalb County is made possible by local generous Media Sponsors. Each year a listing of Media Sponsors is proudly displayed on the giving page website to properly thank each sponsor for their contributions to marketing and communication.
