GiveNOLA Day Raises Record-Breaking $8.1 Million

A message of thanks from BCM Board Chair, Slade Simons

Through strength and unity, the Greater New Orleans community has proven once again how generous our residents can be. We’ve seen this type of love and generosity shown throughout natural disasters following hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods. The recent trials brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic presented new challenges that none of us had ever previously encountered, but we all went through them together. And this is what unites us – responding to a crisis with love for our neighbors.

This week, over 67,000 gifts were given by folks with a desire to help their neighbors. Thank you to the people of Greater New Orleans for supporting over 900 nonprofits who have worked tirelessly throughout the pandemic to keep providing vital services to our community.

Our sincerest thanks to all of the non-profits whose important work continues to strengthen our community and help those in need. Your work is truly heroic and worthy of appreciation. We are humbled to be your partner.

Congratulations to the folks at the Greater New Orleans Foundation for all of their hard work in planning, organizing, and executing such an outstanding GiveNOLA Day.

BCM’s goal has always been to help “heal humanity’s hurts” as this was the mission of Southern Baptist Hospital. That mission is still alive today. BCM could not be more proud to be a part of this community and its efforts to love one another and help heal humanity’s hurts.

Thank you, New Orleans, for your generosity and demonstrating your love for your neighbor.
