PGCS is an all volunteer organization that takes no salaries and depends entirely on corporate grants, memorial gifts, general private and public donations, and one annual fundraiser to assist others.
PGCS was originally funded in 2013 through the generosity of the Gambill Family Foundation and Ken and Debbie Torbett. These founding patrons enabled the mission of PGCS to begin to be a channel of assistance for women in the greater North Atlanta metro area and NE Georgia. Since our inception, many others – both individuals and corporations – have helped us expand our mission. Their support and recognition of our efforts is truly appreciated.
Become a volunteer or an advocate to ensure that our good work keeps going. No matter your passions or interests, there’s a place for your gifts on our team. We would love to hear from you and can’t wait to work with you.
As you might imagine, helping others in their cancer journey is not free. That is why we need businesses and people like you. Perhaps you will choose to donate in someone’s honor or memorialize a loved one – either way your gift will help make a difference.
Ways to Give
Your donation is needed. Whether you choose to send a check in honor of someone or in memory of a loved one, donate through your employer’s Matching Funds Program, donate a vehicle, or select us as your “charity of choice” when you shop at Kroger or Amazon Smile – your donation is appreciated and will be used by those who need it the most.
