GivingPoint is based in Metro Atlanta and follows Atlanta Public Schools' criteria for defining community service. This definition states: Approved community service hours must be performed with tax-exempt, not-for-profit organizations such as United Way Organizations, Educational Agencies, Recreational Centers, Civic Organizations, Hospitals, Charities and Churches. Community service hours will not be accepted when performed at for-profit businesses, or non-charitable organizations, even if the student is not getting paid for their services. These hours are generally done outside of school hours and hour submissions must be sent to a contact person at the organization a student volunteered with. All hours submitted to GivingPoint will be subject to review under these guidelines.
