KTBS is On Your Side with Give for Good

Posted: Updated:
WHAT IS GIVE FOR GOOD?
Give for Good is a 24-hour online giving challenge led by The Community Foundation of North Louisiana to raise unrestricted dollars for the nonprofits in our community. It is a day of giving to celebrate the nonprofits in our community and a chance to raise thousands of dollars to make our community even better.

WHEN IS IT?
May 6, 2014 – A national day of giving to celebrate the 100th anniversary of community foundations across the country. It celebrates and recognizes the impact we can make in our community when we Give for Good!

HOW DOES IT WORK?
On May 6, 2014 anyone can visit www.giveforgoodnla.com and choose the nonprofit(s) to which they want to give! Then dollars from our local “Lagniappe Fund” and our hourly cash prizes will be used to amplify EVERY gift!
