GiveNOLA Day is a 24-hour event hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation 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 that anyone can be a philanthropist, with average donations of $10.
Thanks to donation matching by The Lagniappe Fund, donations made on Tuesday, May 2 will go further than any other day of the year. Each nonprofit will receive a proportional share of The Lagniappe Fund, based upon its percentage of the total GiveNOLA dollars raised.
At Roots we are lucky to have such a strong community supporting us throughout the year, including parents, volunteers, donors and more. This GiveNOLA Day we need all of you more than ever:
- Donate: All donations must go through the GiveNOLA site to be counted! Donate to The Roots of Music via GiveNOLA on Tuesday, May 2, or schedule your donation early! This year GiveNOLA is allowing donors to schedule their donations ahead of time. Early Donations open April 25.
- Spread The Word: Step up and #SupportYourRoots by sharing our posts on social media on Tuesday, May 2. Keep an eye out for all of our favorite New Orleans faces representing the 200+ kids who come to The Roots of Music to learn everyday. Your shares are the key to our success!
