Earn2Give encourages children to achieve, earn, and give by connecting a student’s individual achievements to the joy of giving to others at the holidays.

Earn2Give would not be able to fulfill its mission each year without the generous support of our sponsors and people like you. Your generous contribution will make a positive impact on the lives of thousands of Atlanta-area students and their families.

How does Earn2Give make a difference?

At the start of each new school year, we partner with underserved Atlanta-area elementary schools to kick off the Earn2Give Achievement Program.

Drive Student Achievement

Over an 8 to 10-week period, students earn points for good attendance and citizenship and by demonstrating positive traits, such as empathy, integrity, perseverance, and dedication in the classroom. The focus is on recognizing valuable non-academic achievements, so that every student has a chance to participate and be rewarded.

We work closely with the teachers and administrators to set the guidelines and track the points, and we celebrate and reward the students with a unique holiday shopping day — set up at their school.

Giving is the Reward

At the beginning of December, when the points period has ended, Earn2Give volunteers set up a special Holiday Gift Market within the school, where students can exchange their points for gifts. The twist is they can’t shop for themselves, only for their family members.

Unforgettable Experiences

Each student has their own Earn2Give volunteer who shops with them from hundreds of donated gifts and helps them choose the right presents for the family members in their home: parents, grandparents, and siblings. From jewelry to sports equipment, dolls to remote control toys and more, there’s something for every point level, so no one leaves empty handed.

How does it all work?

Step One
Students earn Achievement Points in a variety of non-academic categories.
Step Two
Students redeem their points at the Holiday Gift Market for gifts for their loved ones.
Step Three
The gifts are given to all family members who live in their home.

Earn2Give’s mission is to recognize a student’s achievements and connect that to the joy of earning and giving to others.

Most of the children who participate in our program have never been able to give gifts to their family members, and the fact that these gifts are earned through their own hard work makes the experience so much more special. Their excitement and pride when they’ve earned their points and shopped for loved ones is undeniable. But it’s a big project, and we can’t do it alone. That’s where you come in!

How to get involved:

Through financial donations, corporate partnerships, hands-on volunteering, or helping us get the word out, you can become a key catalyst in giving these students an opportunity to experience the beauty and power of giving to others….and have a great time along the way.
