Love NOLA? (Of course you do.) So why not GiveNOLA, on May 5?

GiveNOLA is a 24 hour online giving event organized by the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF). Designed to inspire a great joy for charitable giving, hundreds of area nonprofit organizations are banding together for the event, which is taking place on Tuesday, May 5 from 12:01 a.m. through 11:59 p.m. The Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans is proud to be a participant  again this year in GiveNOLA Day, and we hope you will join us by making an increase to your existing gift - or even a new gift altogether! - so that we can be a better community partner here in Greater New Orleans.


So how does GiveNOLA work? During the prescribed 24-hour period, donors can access the Federation giving page on the GiveNOLA website and make a minimum gift of $10.  Have you already made your 2015 Campaign pledge? Consider paying your pledge that day, to stretch your gift further through GNOF’s matching funds. If you do not have computer or internet access, no problem! Simply call the Federation office that day at 504-780-5600, and our staff will help facilitate your gift.

 

During the day, Federation leaders will sponsor matching power hours that will make the power of your gift go even further.  In the morning, from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m., incoming Federation President Eddie Soll will match all funds donated to Federation through the GiveNOLA website up to $1,000. That afternoon, from 3:00 p.m.-4:00p.m., Federation President Morton Katz will also sponsor a power hour match of $1,000.

 

In addition, all increased or new gifts will be matched at 25% by the Goldring and Woldenberg Family Foundations. If you make a gift of $50 through GiveNOLA’s dedicated Federation webpage during either power hour, that means your generosity is stretched to an amazing $112.50. Last year, with your help, we were able to raise over $22,000. Can you help us raise $50,000 in 2015?

 

Please join us on Tuesday, May 5 to demonstrate just how much we all love New Orleans. If you have questions or want to get involved, please contact Cait Gladow at cait@jewishnola.com.
