EarthShare of Georgia was founded in 1993 by its member groups as the Environmental Fund for Georgia to represent them in employee giving campaigns, and to provide an efficient and secure way to manage their donations. In 2001, the Environmental Fund for Georgia officially affiliated with EarthShare, the national employee giving program, to become part of a network representing more than 400 environmental groups working locally, nationally and internationally. This affiliation streamlined representation and facilitated the ability to meet the needs of multi-state employers to organize a single campaign under one name, EarthShare. It also brought with it the fundraising power of the EarthShare network which has raised more than $150 million for the environment. Employee giving campaigns for EarthShare of Georgia have grown steadily each year, from 8 in 1993 to more than 70 in 2009, representing nearly 400,000 employees in the public and private sector.
