The Give Change That Counts campaign aims to strengthen our community and reduce panhandling through the establishment of alternative support networks and enhanced coordination of resources. Funds raised through the campaign, taking place from May to October of 2021, will help establish and support day centers throughout the area that act as safe havens and resource centers for those in need.

This campaign has been developed in coordination with the City of Savannah, Chatham County, Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless and a robust list of organizations in the area including Savannah Downtown Business Association, Visit Savannah Chamber of Commerce/Visit Savannah, Savannah Downtown Neighborhood Association, Savannah Economic Development Authority, Savannah’s Waterfront, and the Tourism Leadership Council.

As a local business, please consider joining our efforts to reduce panhandling on the streets of our community. With your help, we can  make a great impact! Here’s how you can help:

  • Advertising support:  Our creative team can create co-branded advertisements to promote the campaign and your business. This maximizes  the campaign exposure to the public while demonstrating your company’s philanthropic support.
  • Direct donations: Direct financial donations will support the development and expansion of day centers in our community, providing direct allocation of your donations via sponsorship to one of the resource centers and more.
  • Fundraising efforts: Create your own fundraising campaign. Whether you produce an event or choose a round up donation at your business, you have the ability to engage with your community, customers and fellow businesses to help raise awareness and funding.

We would also love for you to promote your support for the campaign by displaying the Give Change That Counts decal or poster in your window or storefront, placing the logo on your website, and promoting on any of your social media platforms. To get a poster or decal for your business, email [email protected] or call 912.660.4718.
