GND 2015: Opening Doors Challenge

How ready are you to challenge yourself, your firm/company, colleagues, friends and family to open some doors for the children represented by The Pro Bono Project?

We know that everybody likes a little competition now and then, so this year to make GiveNOLA Day a little bit interesting for everyone, we’re kicking off the Opening Doors Challenge.

How many doors will your firm or company open on GiveNOLA Day? How many doors will you, your colleagues, family and friends open? Who’s up for the challenge?? How will you help us reach our 2015 GiveNOLA Day goal of $14,090? Download: Open Door Challenge Information

Each Door is worth $10 – the more you give, the more children we can help in 2015 through Child In Need of Care (CINC), Pro Bono & Juveniles (PB & J) and our Family Law Programs.

Rules

If a firm/company gives $1,000 that’s 100 doors and a staff member gives $50 or 5 doors, the total number of doors given by the firm/company and its staff is 105 doors. The more doors everyone gives, the more chance your firm/company has to be the winner. Totals will be based on $10 increments.

·       Winners will be notified via email following the full reconciliation by the Greater New Orleans Foundation of all gifts to The Project from GiveNOLA Day.

·       The winning firm and its top staff winner will be featured in a special edition of In Brief and on the website in July

·       The winning largest individual donor, regardless of employer, will be featured in a special edition of In Brief and on the website in August.

·       If the winning firm individual and the largest individual donor are the same person, they will be featured one time on both the website and in InBrief in the July special edition.

·       Tickets for the Justice for All Ball for the two individual winners will be given prior to the Ball; if the firm individual and the largest individual donor are the same person, that person will be given four (4) tickets to the JFAB.
