Schedule a Donation
From March 12 to May 9, donors can begin scheduling contributions to the organization(s) of their choice. To do so, view the list of participating organizations, select a beneficiary organization, and click the blue "Give" button or blue "Donate Now" button. After selecting or writing-in the donation amount of your choice, click "Add to Cart." At this point, you will have the option of making additional contributions to either the Gumbo Fund or other participating nonprofit organizations. This is not a requirement. Once you are ready to apply payment, click the blue "Checkout" button. Due to the fact that your contribution will be scheduled to be processed on May 10 and will not be processed immediately, donors will need to create a donor profile so that their payment information can be filed. This is completed by providing your First Name, Last Name, and Email and creating a Password. The password must have at least 1 upper case letter and 1 lower case letter for security purposes. Please note, if you do not want to create a login or password, you can wait to make your donation on May 10 when the "Donate As a Guest" option becomes available. Once the login is created, simply enter in your credit/debit card or eCheck information, billing information, and agree to the Terms of Service before submitting your contribution.
**Important: your contribution will not be processed and you will not receive a gift receipt until the actual date of South Louisiana Giving Day -- May 10, 2018. If your donation is made via credit card or debit card, the transaction will not show up on your statement until May 10.
Scheduling a Contribution via Check:
Check contributions must be made payable to Community Foundation of Acadiana with "SOLA - (insert name of organization)" in the memo line. These contributions must be mailed or hand-delivered to our office (address below). Contributions by mail must be postmarked between March 12 and May 10 in order for your donation to added to the organization's leader board total.
