Changing the World Begins Here

In Atlanta, people care for their neighbors and strive to enrich the lives of those around them.

With some of the largest nonprofits in the nation, Atlanta is the place to make an impact.

Atlanta has long been a cornerstone for those who want to change the world. The state of Georgia is home to sixteen of The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s top 400 major nonprofits, and of the top 20 in the nation, four call Atlanta their home: the American Cancer Society, the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, CARE, and the Arthritis Foundation.

The Center for Civic Innovation helps social entrepreneurs tackle tough social problems (and have fun while doing it).

No matter what skills you have to offer, there are hundreds of ways to lend a hand in Atlanta. If you love working with children, you can mentor a child in Atlanta’s growing refugee community or become one of the 1,200 volunteers at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Make life greener with Trees Atlanta, adopt a trail at Dunwoody Nature Center, or volunteer at one of the many parks around the city. Or, you can feed those in need by volunteering at one of the dozens of food pantries throughout the city, delivering much-needed food to elders with Meals on Wheels, or helping families access healthy local foods through Wholesome Wave Georgia.

Atlanta’s volunteers and nonprofits are what the city’s community thriving. That’s why there’s unmatched support for nonprofits in Atlanta, making it an ideal home for nonprofit organizations. If you’re beginning a start-up or looking to relocate, you can find a rental space through the Little Five Points Community Center. Once you’re settled in, Pro Bono Partnership Atlanta can match your business with free legal services. For continued support, there’s the Georgia Center for Nonprofits, dedicated to helping businesses and communities succeed.

In the end, it doesn’t matter how you do it — if you want to make a difference, start in Atlanta.
