GiveNOLA day this year is May 1, 2018.
What is GiveNOLA Day?
GiveNOLA Day is a 24-hour event hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to inspire people to give generously to nonprofits, creating a thriving community for all.
Last year alone over 4.5 million dollars was raised for the New Orleans community, and GiveNOLA Day has previously generated over $10,000 for Eden House!
Why support Eden House on GiveNOLA Day?
Every day, Eden House works to eradicate the trafficking and selling of human beings. We create systemic change through: youth prevention; education and legislative advocacy, and recovery and reentry services for victims, including long-term shelter. Since our first resident arrived in 2012, Eden House has housed 50 residents and assisted over 250 women through direct outreach, advocacy, and consultations.
As an independently and locally funded organization, Eden House relies upon donors and private organizations to partner with us in empowering women.
Your generosity will go towards providing counseling, healthcare, and career services for our residents, as well as facilitating advocacy and prevention programming in our community. Supporting Eden House means giving our residents a chance at a new life full of healing, love, and opportunity.
How does GiveNOLA Day work?
In addition to individual donations, nonprofits participating in GiveNOLA Day can also earn hourly prizes and awards based on the number of hourly donors. At the end of the 24-hour event, each organization will also receive a portion of The Lagniappe Fund, created by the Greater New Orleans Foundation in partnership with sponsors. Each organization’s portion corresponds to their proportion of total donations made on GiveNOLA Day. So if Eden House receives 10% of the donations made on GiveNOLA Day, then we will receive 10% of the Lagniappe Fund.
Who can make a donation on GiveNOLA Day?
Anyone! Donors from across the country can support organizations by giving at least $10.
