Tuesday Deadline For Nonprofits To Register For GiveNOLA Day

NEW ORLEANS – Registration for nonprofits wishing to participate in this year’s GiveNOLA Day closes Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 5:00 p.m. To register, nonprofits must visit www.givenola.org, click “Register” (the blue button is located in the center of the home page if you scroll down), and set up a profile.

         “We encourage all nonprofits throughout the Greater New Orleans area to sign up to participate in GiveNOLA Day and we’re excited to witness the region’s generosity and enthusiasm for these organizations on May 2,” Greater New Orleans Foundation President and CEO Andy Kopplin, said.

         In the past three years, GiveNOLA Day, which is a community-wide, 24-hour online giving day, has raised more than $10 million for regional nonprofits. This year, the Greater New Orleans Foundation hopes to raise $4.5 million from 30,000 donations for 700 nonprofits.

         “We have a culture of giving in the New Orleans community and the generosity is astounding,” Mayor Mitch Landrieu said. “Let’s demonstrate it on May 2 by coming together on this day of giving to help raise $4.5 million to support our incredible nonprofits whose missions range from feeding our hungry, to sheltering our homeless, to promoting the arts.”

         All donations made on the GiveNOLA.org website go directly to participating nonprofits working on a broad range of issues: arts and culture, animals, community improvement, education, environment, health, housing, human rights, human services, public safety and crime and youth development. At the end of GiveNOLA Day, every participating nonprofit will receive a proportional share of the “Lagniappe Fund,” a local pool of incentive dollars raised by sponsors. The Greater New Orleans Foundation does not collect any fees from contributions in order for the nonprofit organizations to receive the maximum benefit.

         All 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that are in good standing with the IRS, nonprofit entities that have a fiscal sponsor that is a 501(c)(3) organization in good standing with the IRS, and organizations categorized by the IRS as 509(a)(3) are eligible to participate. The organization’s service area and mailing address must be in the Greater New Orleans Foundation 13-parish region, which is: Assumption, Jefferson, Lafourche, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, Terrebonne, and Washington. Supporting organizations must provide additional documentation, if not already on file with the Greater New Orleans Foundation.
