AVLF Receives Extra Wish

The Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta’s Extra Wish is a unique donor opportunity that provides monetary contributions for tangible goods – smaller items that don’t fit into a traditional funding stream – that contribute in a clear way to the success of nonprofit organizations and the people they serve.

Through an annual opportunity catalog, Extra Wish matches a nonprofit’s wish (such as microchips for adoptable pets or gas cards for refugee families) with donors who are interested in making a contribution. Donors can leaf through the catalog and choose from 25 Atlanta-area nonprofits’ wishes.

Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation is thrilled to announce that we were included in this year’s Extra Wish catalog – and our 2016 wish was already granted by a generous anonymous donor. In addition to HEPA filter vacuum cleaners and allergen-proof bedding to help us provide short-term relieve to tenants in substandard housing, AVLF received an extra $7,100 in general support, bringing the total donation to $10,000. Thanks to this amazing gift, our clients will sleep easy while we fight the big fights.
