GiveNOLA Day

The Greater New Orleans Foundation and Louisiana Museum Foundation are working together to raise money for the New Orleans Jazz Museum campaign on May 2nd, GiveNOLA Day!

What is GiveNOLA Day? Hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundtation, GiveNOLA Day is the community’s first one-day online giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a stronger and thriving community. It’s our day to come together as one! Every dollar donated from midnight to midnight on May 2 will be increased with additional “lagniappe” dollars. 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. Last year’s event raised $4 million from 28,000+ donations across the nation.

Everybody can participate. Individuals can make online donations to the Louisiana Museum Foundation. On May 2, starting at 12 a.m., and for the next 24 hours, go to and use your credit or debit card to donate. Donations begin at $10 and there is no limit to the maximum size or number of donations you would like to make. You may give to as many different nonprofits as you like.

You can also donate money to the New Orleans Jazz Museum on behalf of jazz curator emeritus, Don Marquis. Learn more about the campaign here:
