Local Non-Profit Organizations

Consider how you can support a nonprofit with cash, but also think about the goods and services, technical assistance, and volunteer hours that might also be  meaningful. Even participating in a fundraising event, and encouraging your friends to join in, might help to raise  money AND foster new relationships that will benefit both the nonprofit and you!

Numerous non-profit organizations serve the Stephens County Community and would appreciate your support. Your  time can sometimes be even more powerful than your dollars.
