WHO WE ARE

Georgia Center for Opportunity is an independent, non-partisan think tank dedicated to increasing opportunities for a quality education, fulfilling work, and a healthy family life for all Georgians

A quality education provides a key path for breaking cycles of poverty.

Work is so much more than simply a way to earn money. It’s a human need that provides a source of structure and meaning in life.

Everyone longs and needs healthy relationships. The family is where it all begins.

“I think GCO is most effective at identifying barriers to opportunity and developing both public policy and community-based solutions to those barriers.”

Matching Gifts Campaign
Because our work is so important, a key supporter and GCO’s Board issued a challenge and pledged $100,000 if we can raise that amount before May 31st. Will you help us reach our goal so that we can increase opportunities for all Georgians?

Donate between now and May 31st and your donation will be automatically matched, dollar-for-dollar, until we reach our $100,000 goal. That means you can be a part of helping us raise an additional $200,000 for GCO!

This community-based program focuses on finding ways to encourage healthy family relationships, strong marriages and stable families.
