Giving Tuesday is Tomorrow!
Pave the Way for the Next Generation of
Leaders on #GivingTuesday

The first $4,000 Gifts Will be Doubled!

Thanks to a generous supporter, the first $4,000 gifts will be matched.

Give early so that your donation will have double the value. This ensures YLC begins the next year of leadership development with the essential resources to continue its necessary work.

The past 2 years have posed a unique series of challenges in our community. Our volunteers continued to give back, despite the concerns of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impacts of Hurricane Ida by
  • Engaging numerous volunteer opportunities with non-profits across the community, including SBP (Hurricane Ida Rebuilding Efforts), SOUL NOLA (Tree Planting), STEM Library Lab (Relocation Assistance), and more.
  • Relaunching programs that help build leaders such as Toastmasters, Leadership Luncheons led by city leaders, and our Leadership Development Series.
  • Reinvigorating our "New Orleans: Proud to Call It Home" campaign to encourage the community to join together and help the New Orleans we know and love return stronger than ever. 
  • Investing in new and ongoing projects that address unmet needs in our community. 
  • Adapting our beloved YLC Wednesday at the Square concert series into a One Night Only benefit concert, in order to raise funds to book talent, production, and vendors for the series in the spring when it will return to Lafayette Square after a 2 year hiatus.
Support the creativity, hard work, commitment, and passion that young leaders bring to New Orleans. Donate today in the spirit of #GivingTuesday.

Are You Proud to Call it Home?
Dear <<First Name>>,  

When the Young Leadership Council (YLC) started its New Orleans: Proud to Call it Home civic pride campaign in 1994, it was to give us all a sense of belongingness in the place where we live, work, play, and grow. Once again, it is time to show why YOU are proud to call New Orleans home. It's time to invest in your city’s future. It's time to rally for your city - your home! Can we count on you?

Share that you are Proud to Call it Home. Make a gift to YLC today, on Giving Tuesday.

Your Giving Tuesday gift to YLC supports leadership development through economic, cultural, and service projects. YLC’s community projects touch every part of life in New Orleans.

From making carnival season greener through the Mardi Gras Recycling Initiative and inspiring 8th graders to achieve their career goals with Power Ties to bringing the beat back to downtown with YLC Wednesday at the Square – YLC makes New Orleans stronger; a place YOU can be proud to call home.    

Your gift to YLC shows you share our vision for a stronger Greater New Orleans where all people thrive.
