Each year the Community Foundation of North Louisiana spearheads our community’s largest day of giving with a 24-hour community-wide giving challenge. On this special day of philanthropy, all donations made through GiveForGoodNLA.org will be amplified by the “Lagniappe Fund” cultivated by the Community Foundation from various contributors.
What does this mean? It means your gift during Give For Good on May 7th means even more.
We are so grateful for the opportunity to watch our community come together in support of area nonprofits. We are privileged to be among the change makers that improve the quality of life for all of us in North Louisiana. The Y is excited to announce that donations received through this year’s Give For Good effort will benefit a pillar of our community and of our organization.
In 2017, we successfully replaced our aging Broadmoor YMCA and established the BHP Billiton YMCA. This tremendous undertaking paves the way for a brighter and healthier future for our members, our community and the strength of our association. However, it is now time for us to build on this positive momentum by investing in the very foundation of our organization which has loyally served our community since 1925, our Downtown Y.
All donations received during the 2019 Give For Good Campaign at the YMCA of Northwest Louisiana will benefit the continued renovation of one of our city’s architectural jewels, the Downtown Y. Immeasurably rich in history and storied beyond measure, the dazzling landmark is the focus of a massive capital campaign now underway.
Please help us give one of our most prized institutions the first class historic renovation it deserves. With your support, we can continue to be a facility that serves the needs of our Downtown Shreveport populace and surrounding neighborhoods while keeping health and fitness at the forefront of our downtown growth and resurgence.
Thank you for considering a gift to the Y on May 7, 2019. In order to be amplified, all gifts must be made through the Give For Good website. Your donation is fully tax deductible.
