Hosted on Tuesday, May 6th by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, GiveNOLA Day is the community’s first one-day, online giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a stronger and thriving community for all.

It’s our day to come together as one! Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 6th will be increased with additional “lagniappe” dollars provided by the Greater New Orleans Foundation and our generous GiveNOLA Day sponsors.

Built on successful models from other cities, GiveNOLA raises money for the community, brings new donors to local nonprofits, and helps make our region a more vital place to live. This year GiveNOLA Day is tied to a national event called Give Local America where hundreds of community foundations across America are asking their communities to give back on May 6, 2014.

How can I participate?

Everybody can participate on GiveNOLA Day. Individuals can make online donations to any participating nonprofits with a minimum of $10. All donations made on May 6th allows your favorite nonprofit or cause the opportunity to earn lagniappe dollars, prizes, and awards.

What nonprofits are participating?

Over 300 nonprofits in the Greater New Orleans Foundation are participating in GiveNOLA Day on May 6, 2014. The participating nonprofits are working on a broad range of issues: arts & culture, animal, education, community improvement, environment, health, human services, and youth development.
