Give back! Give For Good!

See how you can make a difference to many non-profit organizations.

Mark your calendar! Give For Good kicks off on April 20th and runs through May 4th, 2021 . North Louisiana’s largest day of giving is coming up! During this time, open your wallets and donate to one or more of 249+ non-profit agencies in the Shreveport-Bossier area. Community Foundation of North Louisiana oversees this philanthropic undertaking. In 2019, more than 4,000 donations were made totaling over 1.8 million dollars. 2020 donations exceeded $1.9 million. All of the donations helped over 200 organizations supporting North Louisiana last year. For many of these associations, Give for Good is their biggest fundraiser of the year.

It’s really good to give. Search hundreds of non-profits and find the one (or more!) that matters to you. Every organization posts a lot of information displayed about what they do, what their needs are and how they manage donations. The list can be found on the Give For Good website. You can then donate any amount. It’s that simple.

Not only are there non-profits, but fundraising campaigns as well. 35+ campaigns ranging from religious initiatives to veterans services and more are asking you to help them reach their donation goal during this day. See the list here.

Supporting your favorite group(s) can also win them prizes! A Lagniappe Fund is set up and all organizations who raise at least $500. Those get a percentage of the total Lagniappe Fund as a bonus as well as many more prizes given out to the non-profits.

If you don’t want to wait until May, you can schedule a gift now by going online. Let’s support those who are helping others!
