What is GiveNOLA Day?

Hosted on Tuesday, May 2nd, 2017 by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, GiveNOLA Day is the community’s one-day, online giving event to inspire people to give generously to the nonprofit organizations that are making our region stronger, creating a thriving community for all. 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.


Why should I participate or make a donation?

The funds raised on GiveNOLA Day are to be used for the services that are provided at Coastal Communities Consulting, Inc. (CCC) such as the Fishermen’s Wives Association, disaster recovery programs, business technical assistance, and various social services.  All of these require ongoing funding, and your donation ensures that we can continue to deliver quality services in a timely manner.
