As you may have heard, the GiveNOLA donation page suffered from technical difficulties yesterday and many supporters were unable to make a donation. That was bad news for small organizations like Ride New Orleans that rely on individual contributions to support our bottom line.
Fortunately, we’ve just received word that GiveNOLA 2016 has been extended until 5 p.m. Friday. That means if you couldn’t make a donation yesterday, you can still help us win better bus, streetcar, and ferry service for the New Orleans region by pledging today!
Why are we taking pledges instead of directing supporters to our own donation page?
By officially giving through GiveNOLA Day, you are increasing the amount of partial matching dollars we might receive. That means your donation could have even more impact than it normally would.
After making a pledge, a representative from the Greater New Orleans Foundation – the sponsors of GiveNOLA Day – will contact you for payment information within the next week.
Please consider a pledge of $100, $50, $10, or whatever you can afford.
Thank you for all of your support!
