  • GiveNOLA Day 5/4/21

    Today is GiveNOLA Day - a one-day fundraising event for non-profit organizations in the New Orleans area sponsored by the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Any amount will help Threadhead Cultural Foundation continue its support of the musicians, artists and culture bearers of Louisiana. Thank you so much for your consideration!

    Continuing our mission of helping our regional culture bearers, musicians, and artists thrive and create great art during this past year has meant that, in addition to funding projects, TCF also provided assistance by distributing grocery gift cards to help those who make art be able to make groceries during these unprecedented and difficult times.

    With your donation, we can help even more! C'mon! Be a Threadhead and donate today! We raised over $5000 last year, and hope to meet that same goal.

    In a year of so much loss and despair, it's great to know that our artists are now coming back and making sweet music, dance and art to keep this scene and culture going. Help us help them survive and thrive!

          The amount is still going up.

          I just kicked in a bit and sadly have to factor in an extra %22 when I do so, thanks to the exchange rate.

          But so be it.

          Dont miss out folks.

          It is amazing to read that we have given out grants of over 500,000 since inception.

          What a bloody great effort.

          So dig deep.

              Y'all are amazing! We raised a total of $8,350 from 110 donors! (Plus two donations that were sent directly through PayPal.) WOW! It'll take a few days to find out how much of this is matched by the Greater New Orleans Foundation and if we won any of the random bonus prizes. This translates into TWO grants that can go directly to artists for projects next year.

              I'm feeling very thankful to be part of this wonderful group.
