North Georgia Community Foundation
NGCF Community Fund Donate
Hand Me Down Zoo Donate The Hand Me Down Zoo is an animal sanctuary located in Winder, Georgia. Its purpose is to provide a home for exotic animals and non-releasable state wildlife. These can be animals that were legally owned but no longer wanted by their owners, illegally owned animals confiscated by the Department of Natural Resource, and animals who have been injured and/or disabled. They also provide educational experiences for the public on appropriate and responsible animal ownership. While the work that they do can be defined as charitable, they are not a nonprofit organization

On April 4, 2022, a fire broke out the Hand Me Down Zoo destroying their grounds. The purpose of this fund is to assist them in rebuilding their facilities and ensuring the proper care of the animals in their charge. At the completion of this project, any remaining funds will be used for the care and upkeep of the animals at the Zoo.
House Calls Project Fund Donate The House Call Project is a community partnership of North Georgia's News Talk Radio WDUN. The Project is designed to help homes that need repair and/or improvements where the owner(s) cannot make these changes themselves. The changes made to these homes will be at no charge to the owner(s) and will be performed largely by participants and guest on the WDUN Home Matters show as well as community donations.

Sunshine Seniors relies on financial contributions and grants to fund their operations, as well as their key partnerships with the Georgia Mountain Food Bank and the Atlanta Community Food Bank which enables them to secure food and house-hold products they can distribute.
