Support Posse During GiveNOLA Day on May 5

On Tuesday, May 5, 2015, Posse New Orleans will participate in the second annual GiveNOLA Day, a 24-hour online community giving day run by The Greater New Orleans Foundation.

To support Posse, visit GiveNOLA.org at any time on May 5, locate Posse New Orleans by name, then choose the amount you wish to donate. Donations begin at $10 and there is no maximum limit for a gift or number of donations that can be made.

“Bringing college access and graduation opportunities to the youth in the Greater New Orleans area would not be possible without our passionate and caring donors,” says Posse New Orleans director Monica Sylvain. “We thank all of you for your generosity.”

Posse New Orleans will also host a GiveNOLA Day event from 4-7 pm on Tuesday, May 5, at Café Adelaide in the Loews Hotel downtown. Please join Posse alumni and staff for food, drink and fun.

"We would like to see this day's success grow in its second year. The generosity of this community is astounding, and we look forward to helping raise $3 million for area nonprofits," said Albert Ruesga, president and CEO of the Greater New Orleans Foundation. “This day brings new donors to local nonprofits and helps make our region a more vibrant place to live."

GiveNOLA Day is tied to a national campaign, Give Local America, where more than 75 communities across the country are asked to give back. Last year, GiveNOLA Day raised over $2 million with more than 19,000 contributions over the 24-hour period, helping more than 300 nonprofit organizations located in the Greater New Orleans region.
