2017 Empty Stocking Fund

The Empty Stocking Fund has been an expression of holiday generosity to the needy in our area for 87 years. The Augusta Chronicle administers the fund, and every dollar collected goes to local recipients.

Help the less fortunate of the Augusta area from wherever you are. Donations can be made using Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover Card. Donating online is private and secure.

Your donation will be added to the list of donors that will appear in The Augusta Chronicle during the holidays. However, if you wish to donate anonymously, please type "anonymous" in the "MESSAGE" section of the checkout page.

You can mail donations to The Augusta Chronicle's Empty Stocking Fund, P.O. Box 1928, Augusta, GA 30903-1928. Or you can drop off donations at the cashier’s office at The Chronicle News Building, 725 Broad Street, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.


The Empty Stocking Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax deductible.

Credit card transactions for Empty Stocking donations are processed each Friday. The donations are recognized in the newspaper the following Sunday.


Applications are available in the lobby of The Augusta Chronicle, 725 Broad Street, weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Deadline to apply is Nov. 30.
