How will you invest in New Orleans' future?

Support this GiveNOLA Day!

The funds we raise this GiveNOLA Day will directly support our community outreach, response and training efforts!

On May 2nd, thousands of people will show their support for their favorite New Orleans nonprofit organizations on GiveNOLA Day, a day of charitable giving hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Funds raised on GiveNOLA Day will be amplified by the Greater New Orleans Foundation "lagniappe fund", as well as additional awards and prizes!

Our mission: annually recruits, trains, and manages over 500 evacuation volunteers (Evacuteers) who assist with New Orleans’ public evacuation option called City-Assisted Evacuation (CAE). We serve to prepare and register evacuees, ensuring their ability to evacuate safely and with dignity.

If you've been following us over the last year, our role in disaster preparedness and response has evolved: we recruited and managed over 200 volunteers to assist homeowners in the Baton Rouge area following the catastrophic floods of last August, and another 25 volunteers to distribute emergency food supplies in the first 3 days after tornadoes struck New Orleans East.

We can guarantee that each contribution, no matter how big or small, goes to the robust work of just two staff members who train over 500 volunteers each year, conduct youth outreach with over 700 EvacuKids participants, and provide information to thousands of citizens at dozens of community outreach events.

We believe that the work we do together will help save lives, and we truly appreciate the kindness of individual supporters like you!
