GiveNOLA Day is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to ignite the giving community in Southeast Louisiana. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the work of local nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event raised nearly $5.6 million from nearly 49,000 donations across the nation and around the world. This year, we hope to do even more! GiveNOLA Day is based on other successful giving days hosted by community foundations across the country.
While we encourage you to support your local nonprofits with year-round giving, we are creating a special event on May 7 – a charitable holiday. It’s our day to celebrate the Greater New Orleans region’s spirit of generosity and support the work of our nonprofits. Plus, your dollars during the 24-hour period will be amplified by proportional “lagniappe funds,” as well as possible awards and hourly prizes.
