GEARING UP FOR GiveNOLA DAY ON May 4th
It’s that time of the year again! The one day a year where all the amazing nonprofit work in New Orleans gets amplified through GiveNOLA Day! For 24 hours on Tuesday, May 4th, everyone who loves our region can support their favorite local causes by donating to one or more of 700+ participating nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event, put on by Greater New Orleans Foundation, raised over $7.1 million from over 50,000 donations across the nation and around the world.
Friends of City Park has participated in GiveNOLA Day since its inception. We have benefited in many ways including gaining new supporters, stepping out of our comfort zones with new fundraising ideas, collaborating with other nonprofits, and last year we surpassed our fundraising goal and even won a GNOF sponsored award, all thanks to YOU, our Friends of City Park!
Friends of City Park is working towards its annual goal to raise $30,000 on this day. In early April we were approached by the good folks at Meyer Engineers and they offered to match all GiveNOLA Day donations up to $2,500.
JOIN OUR VIRTUAL STREET TEAM
Although we are well on our way, we still need some help to reach our goal of $30,000. We plan to do that by enlisting YOU to be a part of our (Virtual) Street Team.
A Street Team is a marketing term used to describe a passionate group of people who ‘hit the streets’ promoting an initiative. We have decided to arm our Street Teams with everything they need to help us achieve our GiveNOLA Day goal from the comfort of their homes. That’s right, you can help City Park and volunteer by participating in our (Virtual) Street Team, all from your PJ’s!
