Support Posse on May 3 for GiveNOLA Day

On May 3, Posse New Orleans will participate in GiveNOLA Day, a one-day online giving event run by The Greater New Orleans Foundation. To support Posse, visit GiveNOLA.org at any time on May 3, search for The Posse Foundation, and make a donation.

Gifts can be as small as $10 and there is no maximum limit for a gift or number of donations that can be made. Your donation can also help Posse win bonus prize money from the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Organizations that receive a donation of $10 or more are eligible to receive a $1,000 Rock-Around-the-Clock prize for that hour. Prizes will also be made to the organizations with the most unique donors and most money raised during three special “Throw Me Something Mister” hours.

“Our donors are so important to the work that we do to make college access and graduation opportunities available to deserving students,” says Posse New Orleans director Monica Sylvain. “They really do make college dreams come true.”

Last year, GiveNOLA Day raised over $4 million from nearly 35,000 contributions during the 24-hour period, helping 571 nonprofit organizations in the Greater New Orleans region. GiveNOLA Day is part of the Give Local America campaign, which engages tens of thousands of donors in communities across the country for one day of charitable giving.
