Thank You for Support on GiveNOLA Day

Posted: Wednesday, May 7th, 2014 at 11:59 am in Events, News

The board and staff of NPN/VAN are overwhelmed with appreciation for the support we received from our friends across the country. We had 59 people donate for a total of $3437. The day was quite successful for New Orleans area nonprofits: 19,625 gifts were made for a total of $2,264,512 to more than 300 organizations. AfricaNOLA, a member of NPN’s Local Network, won the 4 PM Rock-Around-the-Clock $1000 lagniappe prize. All organizations will receive additional matching funds thanks to the generosity of the Greater New Orleans Foundation and its supporters.

GiveNOLA Day bannerThe Greater New Orleans Foundation is hosting GiveNOLA Day – a 24-hour, online giving event. The funds NPN/VAN raises through today’s online campaign will be eligible for a share of “lagniappe” – New Orleans’ way of saying “a little something extra.” We are asking for “a little something extra” from you to help NPN/VAN claim a share of the nearly $300,000 in lagniappe dollars, awards and prizes provided by the Greater New Orleans Foundation and generous sponsors.
