The Greater New Orleans Foundation hosts 24-hour online fundraiser with ‘GiveNOLA Day,’ May 5

Written by  Greater New Orleans Foundation
What is GiveNOLA Day?
Hosted on Tuesday, May 5 by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, GiveNOLA Day is the community’s one-day, online giving event to inspire people to give generously to the nonprofit organizations that make our region a stronger and more thriving community for all. It’s our day to come together as one! Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 5th will be increased with additional “lagniappe” dollars provided by the Greater New Orleans Foundation and our generous GiveNOLA Day sponsors. Last year, we raised $2.25 million dollars from 19,000+ donors around the nation. This year, our goals are to raise $3 million from 25,000+ donors!
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 5 give your favorite nonprofit the opportunity to earn lagniappe dollars, awards, and hourly prizes.
What nonprofits are participating?
In 2014, our inaugural year, 309 nonprofits across the region participated in GiveNOLA Day. This year, 574 nonprofits are signed up to participate! The participating nonprofits are working on a broad range of issues: arts & culture, animal, education, community improvement, environment, health, human services, and youth development. All of the money raised will go toward programs and services benefitting our community.
Why is the Greater New Orleans Foundation hosting this event?
Our goal is encourage and grow philanthropy in New Orleans and its surrounding parishes. In these economic times, the need for funding has never been greater. Nonprofits are stretched to meet current needs. GiveNOLA Day is a tremendous help to build more community awareness about our exceptional nonprofits and to increase financial support for them. We’re growing the giving community by motivating donors to make an extra gift on this one day to help our local nonprofit organizations.
So, on May 5, go online to anytime starting at midnight until 11:59 pm on Tuesday, May 5 and make gifts to all the nonprofits you want to support. There will be a Leaderboard tab on the website – – that will show dollars raised throughout the day, as well as a profile on each participating nonprofit, the number of donors who’ve made a gift, and the total number of dollars raised.

You're invited to the GiveNOLA Day Fiesta!
Since GiveNOLA Day falls on Cinco De Mayo this year, the public is invited to a GiveNOLA Day Fiesta with music and entertainment at Lafayette Square between 7:00am to 7:00pm. Come watch the leaderboard as millions of dollars are raised; give to your favorite charity at the Donation Station powered by Entergy; and enjoy Mexican food from Juan’s Flying Burrito benefitting GiveNOLA Day. During happy hour between 4:00pm and 7:00pm, enjoy margaritas from Avion, Jose Cuervo, and Milagro tequilas or beer from Dos Equis – all sales will benefit the GiveNOLA Day Lagniappe Fund. Hope you can join us!
Together, we have the ability to raise three million dollars in just one day that will go far to improve the quality of life for many people in our community!
