Our Story

How The GIVE Center came to be

The GIVE Center was started in the fall of 1997 by Kendall M. Stiles with the help of a student, Kate Van Cantfort. These two recognized the desire of many Georgia College students to volunteer in their community and subsequently created The GIVE Center with volunteer opportunities being doled out of a single red basket. In four short years, The GIVE Center had grown into several offices and over fifteen student coordinated programs. From that point, the Center grew exponentially. In 2005, Georgia College graduate Paul F. Sedor II was hired as the center's first assistant director who introduced new forms of technology to help better serve students and agencies. In addition, the center developed a stronger collaboration with the Community Action Team for Service (CATS) which has created additional volunteer opportunities for our campus.

Supporting The GIVE Center in new ways

Participants do a big favor for someone, and give them the Pay It Forward tracking card, asking them to pay it forward. Each time the card is passed forward to a new person, they log onto our website and tell how they received the card. Our database tracks each entry and visitors can search for cards to see how people are paying it forward. If you have a card and would like to make an entry in our database click here.
