Hosted on Tuesday, May 2nd by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, GiveNOLA Day is the community’s first one-day, online giving event to inspire people to give generously to non-profit organizations who make our region a stronger and more thriving community for all.

It’s our day to come together as one! Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 2nd will be increased with additional “lagniappe” dollars provided by the Greater New Orleans Foundation and by our generous GiveNOLA Day sponsors.

Built on successful models from other cities, GiveNOLA raises money for the community, brings new donors to local nonprofits, and helps make our region a more vital place to live. The goal is to inspire the community to come together for 24 hours to contribute as many charitable dollars as possible to support the work of local nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event raised $4 million.

A new feature this year is the ability to schedule a donation two weeks in advance of GiveNOLA Day. For our friends that may be traveling and would like to still be able to show support, beginning Tuesday, April 25 donors have the ability to schedule a donation with these steps: create an account on, complete a donor form and submit the form. The payment will be processed on May 2, 2017, at which time the system will generate an email receipt.

Need some assistance navigating the web-site on GiveNOLA Day?  We can help!  Staff and volunteers will be on-hand from 10AM until 5:45PM at our GiveNOLA Day 2017 Donation Station in the JPAS Main Office.  Enjoy light refreshment as we guide step by step the “where” and “how” of the online giving portal.  And, we can’t say “Thank You” enough–your support makes the work we do in the community possible.

We are asking you to help JPAS stand out by helping us engage 1,000 people.  If we activate 1,000 people, we will exceed what we raised last year. Become a JPAS GiveNOLA Day Champion, and invite your friends to support us so that we can meet our goal of 1,000 gifts.  We can’t wait to celebrate the difference your generosity will make on May 2nd!

To show how much we appreciate your generous support for our community programs, we would like to give you back a little bit extra…
