What is GiveNOLA Day?
GiveNOLA Day, an initiative of the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is a one day online giving event. For 24 hours, everyone who loves our region can support their favorite local causes by donating to one or more of 900+ participating nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event raised over $8.1 million from over 67,000 donations across the nation and around the world. Since our first event in 2014, GiveNOLA Day has raised over $40 million for our region’s nonprofits. This year, we hope to do even more!

What is a community foundation?
Community foundations are tax-exempt public charities with a common goal: improving the quality of life in the geographic areas they serve. They are funded by individuals, families, corporations, and nonprofit organizations that create permanent charitable funds to help meet critical needs within a given region. Overseen by a volunteer board of leading citizens, community foundations invest and administer these funds. We are proud to be one of 700+ community foundations in the United States.
