Welcome to the Georgia Pearls of Service Foundation, Inc. (GPOS) website! We're so pleased that you've visited our website. Here you will find information about who we are; what we do, and how you can help.
Georgia Pearls of Service Foundation, Inc. (GPOS) was established in 2015 to address community and global needs through local programs. Though based in Peachtree Corners, Georgia, the reach of our good works extends beyond those borders, reaching the broader communities of Gwinnett, DeKalb and Fulton Counties.
The Foundation’s primary purpose is to foster charitable giving by raising funds to support educational and charitable programs. GPOS works every day to serve the community by making donations to organizations that share our philanthropic values, awarding college scholarships to deserving high school students, and delivering transformative programs that meet the needs of underserved populations.
Your support of GPOS will entitle you to a charitable tax deduction; GPOS is a tax-exempt nonprofit entity under the 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.
Georgia Pearls of Service Foundation’s signature fundraiser, "A Kaptivating Affair", returns this year to continue to Unmask the Face of Homelessness and Childhood Hunger.
Homelessness and childhood hunger are not only issues for third world countries, they also plague suburban communities like those served by GPOS. Children facing hunger and homelessness may struggle in school and beyond. They are more likely to repeat a grade in elementary school, experience developmental delays, and have more social and behavioral problems. Programs that help to meet this need will have long-lasting positive impacts on these children, their families, and our communities as a whole.
The generous support of sponsors and donors in 2022 enabled GPOS to provide children with more than 2,000 hunger-free days. We also awarded 12 Ora B. Douglass Scholarships to college-bound high school seniors, and sponsored a back-to-school fair that supplied 250 backpacks filled with school supplies to children in need.
100% of the profit from donations and sponsorships from our 2023 A Kaptivating Affair fundraiser will be used to fund relevant community service projects and scholarships such as these.
GPOS is proud to invest in our youth by providing college scholarships. A record number of applications were received this year, and we are proud to have awarded the 2023 Ora B. Douglass Scholarships to 12 deserving students.
