Hosted on Tuesday, May 6 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.

Just what is GiveNOLA day? According to the Greater New Orleans Foundation it is 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.

Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 6 will be increased with additional “lagniappe” dollars provided by the Greater New Orleans Foundation and its generous GiveNOLA Day sponsors.

You can help. Join the thousands of residents in the Greater New Orleans area that will show their support for their favorite nonprofit organizations during GiveNOLA Day. On that day, every donation WWNO receives will go a little further and help us claim our share of $200,000 in bonus dollars from the Lagniappe Fund, plus an additional $96,000 in prizes.
