For the first time in TGK history, we’re asking our supporters to help raise critical funds for our organization by joining the TGK Dream Team and participating in GIVE Atlanta – a crowd-sourced online fundraising challenge started by Atlanta Magazine that pits The Giving Kitchen against 20 other nonprofits in a fundraising contest. TGK is the underdog in the contest – but we have a secret weapon: all of you!
What is the TGK Dream Team? (and how do I win a free dinner at Staplehouse?)
The TGK Dream Team is the core group of TGK supporters committed to setting up their own “Fundraiser” pages and participating in The Give Atlanta Challenge, from 10/10 – 11/14.
Every member of the TGK Dream Team who sets up a fundraising page, shares it with their friends and raises at least $50 will receive an ultra-rare TGK Dream Team bumper sticker. Don’t be stuck with TGK sticker envy!
Prizes: We will be giving away a free dinner for two at Staplehouse (yes, we will handle the reservations) to one random Dream Team participant AND to the Dream Team member who raises the most funds in the GIVE Atlanta Challenge. What a great way to support TGK and enjoy your very own Chicken Liver Tart. : )
How do I become a fundraiser?
Join the TGK Dream Team! It’s as easy as 1 – 2 – 3!

Wait, what is the GIVE Atlanta Challenge?
The Give Atlanta Challenge is a fundraising competition hosted by Atlanta Magazine where local charities compete to raise the most money, with the top teams winning cash prizes based on participation. The challenge launches on Tuesday, October 10, and runs through Tuesday, November 14. There will be Bonus Challenges each week, offering TGK the chance to win thousands of dollars (up to $17k in total) to help support our restaurant community – so you’ll want to stay tuned throughout GIVE Atlanta!
There are restaurant workers in crisis who desperately need our help. And that support can often make the difference in keeping our grantees from becoming homeless or having their utilities shut off. Luckily, we have some VERY BIG NEWS. The folks at metro Atlanta Ruth’s Chris Steak House restaurants have decided to match EVERY DOLLAR we raise up to $25,000, doubling the impact of every dollar you give.
We need YOUR support to achieve our vision: a restaurant community where crisis is met with compassion and care.
And THANK YOU SO MUCH to our friends at metro Atlanta locations of Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
