225 Gives
giving tuesday


It’s in the small acts of kindness, caring and connection that we can heal and weave the future we want. We can make lives better. 

The Season of Giving is upon us. Your endless support allows the National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana to grow and expand its services to Louisianians who are affected by chronic kidney disease. 

Since March, the Foundation has created new programs including: "Safe Rides with Uber Health"; a nutritional supplement stipend; the "revival" of a mental health program we developed for dialysis patients after Katrina and have updated to include new therapies, ideas, etc.; and the transition of our public education in person communications to regular video content on our website.


Wreaths of Hope

Vote for the NKFLA.

Boyd Gaming knows that there is no better way to help our communities than through charitable support. Their Wreaths of Hope campaign aims to support non-profit organizations in the communities the casinos serve across the country.

As we approach the holiday season and think about the season of giving, we remind you to help support the kidney community and cast your vote on our wreath!

What is 225 Gives?

225 GIVES, presented by Baton Rouge Area Foundation (BRAF) and Capital Area United Way (CAUW), is a 24-hour online giving day taking place December 1, 2020 with a one week early giving period set to open on Tuesday, November 24th. 225 GIVES has set a goal of helping generate over $4,225,000 for area nonprofits. This powerful online fundraising initiative will unite the Capital Region in support of the nonprofit community.


Raising money for nonprofits is more vital than ever. So many have reached into their own reserves to care for people during the pandemic, support natural disaster recovery across the region, and confront social injustice issues facing our communities. 225 GIVES will help our nonprofit community recover so they can pursue their respective missions.


225GIVES.ORG is a unique giving platform connecting people to nonprofits they believe in. Donors may search by parish, city, cause, demographic served, organization size, and more. With so many worthy organizations represented, there will be something for everyone to support through 225 GIVES!

What is Giving Tuesday?

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.


Whether it’s making someone smile, helping a neighbor or stranger out, showing up for an issue or people we care about, or giving some of what we have to those who need our help, every act of generosity counts and everyone has something to give.
