WHAT IS GIVE FOR GOOD?

Give for Good is a 24-hour online giving challenge led by The Community Foundation of North Louisiana to raise unrestricted dollars for the nonprofits in our community. It is a day of giving to celebrate the nonprofits in our community and a chance to raise thousands of dollars to make our community even better.


WHEN IS IT?

May 3, 2016 – A national day of giving that shines a light on the local nonprofits in our community. It celebrates and recognizes the impact we can make in our community when we join together to Give for Good!


WHY ARE WE DOING THIS:

  • To build a broad and more engaged culture of philanthropy for our community.
  • Bring as many people as possible together around giving
  • Show North Louisiana’s spirit of giving
  • Raise awareness in the community about the many services our nonprofit community provides
  • Create more unrestricted dollars in an economy where more is being required with fewer resources
  • To build the next generation of philanthropists for the Shreveport metro area


HOW DOES IT WORK?

Easy! First, nonprofits will have until February 12, 2016 to create a giving profile. On May 3, 2016 anyone can visitwww.giveforgoodnla.org and choose the nonprofit(s) to which they want to give! Then dollars from our local “Lagniappe Fund” and our hourly cash prizes will be used to amplify EVERY gift!


WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Anyone can make a donation to participating nonprofits! Nonprofits should check the Rules and FAQ to determine eligibility. Registration ended February 12, 2016.
