Nonprofit Funding Available – Greater New Orleans area

HUGE opportunity for NOLA area nonprofits!

Imagine unrestricted funding (better than a grant!) in exchange for the sweat equity of volunteers…

In the past year I’ve had the opportunity to participate in two similar opportunities as a Rotarian– selling beer at the City of Covington’s Rockin’ On the Rails & at Jazzfest. Not only did we earn a nice sum of funding to support Rotary’s local and international human service initiatives, we had FUN!

Tanja Rogers, the Non Profit Recruiter & Trainer for Centerplate at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and New Orleans Arena, asked me to share this information with nonproifits in the Greater New Orleans area. They are looking for area nonprofits to participate in their generous funding opportunity described below:

“Fundraising Made Easy with Centerplate at Mercedes-Benz Superdome and New Orleans Arena

Say goodbye to car washes, candy sales, and magazine sales.  Centerplate at Mercedes-Benz Superdome gives back to the local community by offering non-profit organizations the opportunity to volunteer at concession stands during events to raise money.  We use non-profit groups to staff 95% of our stands.  Last year, Centerplate gave back more than $1.3 million to the local community.

Centerplate is now looking for 501 (c)(3), non-profit organizations for the upcoming 2012-2013 event season at the city’s premier event venues. If you are interested, please contact Tanja Rogers at (504) 264-4848 or via email at”
