“Let’s all get ready to give! On May 7th, we will have the opportunity to come together as a community to support our incredible nonprofits who work to improve the quality of life for us all,” said Greater New Orleans Foundation President and CEO Andy Kopplin. “We have a culture of giving in the Greater New Orleans region and the generosity of our people is astounding. Last year’s GiveNOLA Day raised $5.6 million from nearly 49,000 donations across the world. This year’s goal is to raise $6 million.”
Powered by Entergy, GiveNOLA Day launched six years ago by GNOF for those in the region to donate to their favorite causes. Since its inception in 2014, GiveNOLA Day has raised more than $20 million for nonprofit organizations. Because the minimum donation is $10, it’s a day when everyone can be a philanthropist and together collectively raise millions of dollars to help communities. To make a donation on May 7, donors can visit to GiveNOLA.org and give to any of the more than 700 participating nonprofits.
