Community Foundation Announces ‘Give for Good’ Plans
The Community Foundation of North Louisiana is taking registration for nonprofits wanting to participate in this year's Give for Good.
The event begins at 12 a.m. Tuesday, May 3, and ends at 11:59 p.m. Registration will continue through February 12. Visit the Give for Good website for eligibility requirements. Community Foundation staff will ensure all organizations are in good standing with the IRS and state entities.
All dollars raised through The Community Foundation's website on Give for Good day will be amplified with dollars from the local Lagniappe Fund, a pool of incentive dollars for participating nonprofits. CF has committed $100,000 to that fund, and individuals and businesses wishing to add their support can contact Jennifer Steadman at 318-221-0582 for more information.
In 2014, Give for Good raised more than $1.2-million for 77 participating agencies. Last year, that amount rose to $1.7-million for 156 nonprofits. The Foundation expects more than 200 local agencies to participate this year.
