Give NOLA Day!

GiveNOLA Day, hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is a one-day online giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations that are making our region stronger, creating a thriving community for all. GiveNOLA Day raises money for the community, brings new donors to local nonprofits, and shows anyone can be a philanthropist. Anyone can make a tax deductible donation to a nonprofit that has created a profile on GiveNOLA.org. The minimum gift is $10 and there is no maximum size or number of donations you can make.  In its inaugural year, more than $2.2 million was raised for more than 300 participating nonprofits from more than 19,000 donors on GiveNOLA Day. In its second year, more than $4 million was raised from nearly 35,000 gifts for 571 nonprofits.

2nd Annual Charity Golf Tournament!

Our Purple Purpose Golf Tournament is a fun event that combines many of our supporters' passion for golf with their passion for helping our mission. This is a great opportunity to get your employees, customers, or corporate partners out of the office and participating in a community event. You'll be surprised at the camaraderie that can be built over a collaboration for a charity sporting event! The day kicks off with a shot gun start followed by a day on the links and concluding with an award luncheon.
