GiveNOLA Day was part of Give Local America.  On May 6th, over 80 cities participated in a community wide giving event.  From Seattle to West Palm Beach, Waterbury to Los Angeles, 306,044 donations were made, which generated $53,148,406.36 nationally.

In the greater New Orleans area, this event generated $2,256,151.83 from 19,625 which accounts for 4.2 percent of the entire funds raised and 6.4 percent of donors!  The Jefferson Children’s Advocacy Center raised $1100 through the contributions of 14 unique donors.  A HUGE thank you from the JCAC to everyone who participated in making GiveNOLA the success that it was!
