Community Partnership Opportunities


Bayou Community Foundation is hosting the first community giving day JUST FOR OUR BAYOU REGION – BayouGives on Tuesday, April 30, 2019. Gifts made on from 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 pm April 30 will support 68 nonprofits in Terrebonne, Lafourche and Grand Isle. Our goal is to raise $100,000 for our community organizations!

We invite your business to jump on the bandwagon and show your love for the important work our local nonprofits do!

We are looking for business partners in our community who want to show their support for BayouGives and the 68 participating nonprofits by offering some kind of BayouGives Special Event to promote the online giving day and benefit all nonprofits.

BayouGives Day is Tuesday, April 30, and your promotion could be on that single day, multiple days, or for a whole week. You can choose your own level of support and timing and we’ll promote your event on and on social media, and we’ll promote your company as a partner!

Here are examples of some BayouGives promotions you may want to consider:

  • Restaurant, Bar, Coffee Shop Special – BayouGives Sandwich/Pizza/Entrée/Drink- $1 per item sold during a particular time donated to BayouGives to benefit all nonprofits
  • Kick-Off or Celebration Party – host a BayouGives kick-off or celebration party on April 29 or 30, promote the day to your customers and offer a food or drink special. BayouGives nonprofits will attend too! Did I mention there are 68 organizations?!!
  • Host a Donation Station – with one laptop computer or ipad, your business could be a “BayouGives” Donation Station! Encourage your customers to stop by and give online on April 30. It will drive customers to your business and show them how much you care.
  • Employee Giving Event – ffer a dress-down day or other perk to employees who make a gift for BayouGives. Your company can collect employee gifts and make one contribution to BayouGives in your company’s name, or just encourage staff to make individual gifts online.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU? Our business partners will receive SO MUCH LOVE from BayouGives and all of our nonprofits on the web and social media, and we will work hard to drive customers to your business for your giving events! When We Give Where We Live, everyone benefits!
