Ashé Cultural Arts Center is an initiative of Efforts of Grace, Inc., a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3), organization that creates and supports programs, activities, and creative works emphasizing the contributions of people of African descent. Located in Central City New Orleans, the Center provides opportunities for art presentations, community development, artist support, and the creation of partnerships that amplify outreach and support efforts.




Hosted on Tuesday, May 5th by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, GiveNOLA Day is the community’s first one-day, online giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a stronger and thriving community for all.


Ashé CAC'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-day-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.

Your support is needed and appreciated. Make your donation count on Give Ashé on GiveNOLA Day!

ON MAY 5th at 12:00 a.m.

GiveNOLA Day officially begins.
