Give For Good is North Louisiana's largest day of giving. It is a 24-hour online fundraising challenge to encourage the community members to support their favorite nonprofit organizations. Not only does this event provide an easy one-stop shop for donors, it provides organizations with the chance to earn bonus funds through the Lagniappe Fund and additional prizes throughout the day.

The Lagniappe Fund which amounted to almost a quarter million dollars in 2018, is divided up among the organizations based on the percentage of the total funds raised during Give For Good.
