Give Nola Day was Amazing – Thank you!

Give NOLA Day was May 1.  It is a 24-hour long, city-wide campaign by the Greater New Orleans Foundation to raise money for charities in our community.  It was an amazing success.  The total donations for Deutsches Haus were $34,555! This put us in the top 25 out of 700 charities. And the grand total for all the charities put together exceeded the campaign goal of $5 million!  Our community was very generous.

Thank you to everyone who donated to Deutsches Haus.  Your donation will go to our Build the Haus fund. Your support will assist our return to New Orleans, and help allow us to continue our cultural programs, and our support of other community organizations.
