On November 28, the Fulton County Community Foundation hosted their annual Giving Tuesday event, where event goers mingled and celebrated the international day of generosity.

Community member donations surpassed $193,000 and combined with $25,000 in match funds from RapidView, LLC and over $256,000 in community fund matches, the Giving Tuesday total contributions were over $449,000 for Fulton County! Dollars will be used to generate grants and scholarships that positively impact the community now and forever through endowments.

Giving Tuesday, always held the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, brings the generosity of people all around the world together to make real change, and year after year, Fulton County exceeds the day’s sentiment.

“We are so appreciative of all the donors who participated in the Giving Tuesday campaign,” said Brian Johnson, the Fulton County Director of Development. “The donations made this year will continue to make an impact for years to come in Fulton County. Thank you to all who gave, helping to make our community a better place for all.”
