GiveNOLA Day 2017

Please donate to the Mardi Gras Indian Hall of Fame during GiveNOLA Day on Tuesday, May 2, 2017.

GiveNOLA Day is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to ignite the giving community in Southeast Louisiana. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the work of local nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event raised $4 million from 28,000+ donations across the nation. This year, we hope to do even more! GiveNOLA Day is based on other successful giving days hosted by community foundations across the country.

Some of you may remember that the server crashed during last year’s event. You may go on and schedule a donation to be processed May 2. Please note that these pre-scheduled donations will not be eligible for Rock Around the Clock prizes.

Thank you for your support!
