The Shop was created on the foundation of fostering community, which extends far beyond the walls of our workspace. New Orleans is a city built on community, which is why there’s a dedicated day focused on celebrating the region’s spirit of generosity while supporting the work of its nonprofits.
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. GiveNOLA Day is based on other successful giving days hosted by community foundations across the country. Last year’s event raised nearly $4.9 million from 38,000+ donations across the nation. This year, Greater New Orleans Foundation hopes to do even more!
Please support the following Shop partners and workspace members with a charitable donation this Tuesday, May 1, 2018. All money donated during the 24-hour period will be amplified by proportional “lagniappe funds,” as well as possible awards and hourly prizes.
