Who We Are
EarthShare Georgia was founded in 1992 by its nonprofit partners as the Environmental Fund for Georgia to represent them in workplace-giving campaigns, and to provide an efficient and secure way to manage their donations. In 2001, the Environmental Fund for Georgia officially affiliated with EarthShare, the national employee giving program, to become part of a network representing more than 500 environmental groups working locally, nationally and internationally, while retaining the benefits of an independent 501 (c ) non-profit. This affiliation streamlined representation and facilitated the ability to meet the needs of multi-state employers to organize a single campaign under one name, EarthShare. It also brought with it the fundraising power of the EarthShare network which has raised more than $350 million for the environment.
Workplace-giving campaigns for EarthShare Georgia have grown from 8 in 1993 to more than dozens in 2020, representing approximately 400,000 employees in the public and private sector. Since 1995, EarthShare Georgia has raised more than $6 million dollars to help support environmental causes and its nonprofit partners.
