GiveNOLA Day: Tuesday, May 3

GiveNOLA Day is the community's first one-day, online giving event with a purpose to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a stronger and thriving community for all.  It is hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation.

For the third year, Ashé Cultural Arts Center has joined as one of the nonprofits expressing a desire to have you support its efforts by giving during the event's 24 hour run. 


Ashé's practice of cultural and social clarification, education, instigation and inspiration serves the whole community, from children to elders, men and women, organizations, learning circles, families, and most of all artists and culture bearers. We have provided 50 weeks of 6-days-a-week activities at the center and in the community. This high level of performance has been supported by funding from foundations (80%), earnings on our part (15%), and donations on your part (5%). But that's not a sustainable formula. Our future depends on our ability to convert more of our friends, supporters and cheerleaders into investors. We need and appreciate your support.
