Join us for 24 hours of giving to benefit our local nonprofits and make a difference.
WHAT IS GIVE FOR GOOD? Give For Good, hosted by The Community Foundation of Northwest Louisiana, brings the region together as one community, raising money and awareness for our local nonprofits during the 24-hour online giving challenge. They inspire people to give generously to nonprofits making our region stronger, creating a thriving community for all.
THERE IS MORE! Your gift will be AMPLIFIED by The Community Foundation! The Lagniappe Fund is a pool of bonus dollars that is used to grow
organizations' gifts. The Community Foundation secures these funds to be
shared by all participating nonprofits receiving donations during Give
For Good. The amount each organization receives from the Lagniappe Fund
will be based on their overall percentage of funds raised the day of the
event. For example, if an organization raises 10% of the total funds
collected on May 7, it will receive 10% of the Lagniappe Fund.
DO I HAVE TO BE FROM LOUISIANA? NO! In years past, Give For Good garnered over $1.6 million annually for area nonprofits.
Those funds came from more than 3,400 donors representing 42 different
states. That means that people from across the country are coming
together to fund important initiatives in North Louisiana. You can give and campaign from anywhere!
The actual Day of Giving is May 7 BUT you can go on and schedule a donation TODAY! The minimum donation amount is $10. There is no maximum donation. ALL donations are tax deductible. Remember that your gift will be AMPLIFIED by The Community Foundation.
Our online donors represent a wide range of locations, interests, and backgrounds. Anyone can make a donation. You do not have to live in North Louisiana to donate. In fact, we encourage nonprofits to identify donors in all 50 states!
Simply go to giveforgoodnla.org/twn and use your credit card to make a donation. Donations can be any size, from $10 and up. You can also add multiple organizations to your cart and make several gifts at once!
