At Café Reconcile, YOU are Building Hope and Changing Lives for New Orleans most vulnerable youth.

And for that, we are grateful.

Since opening in 2000 as a grassroots cafeteria, donors like YOU have transformed more than 1,800 young people’s lives through eight weeks of Café Reconcile’s signature workforce training program.

YOU are building hope.

But that’s not all that YOU do.

YOU change lives through alumni support services.

With your support, our doors remain open to hundreds of alumni each year who need coaching to remain connected to employment and resources. . .

. . . because everyone needs a little help to make their dreams come true.

And, that’s the magic of our program.

But, the work is not over AND need is great right now. Thousands of young people throughout the Greater New Orleans region are unemployed and not in school. Thousands needing YOUR support.

Join us for lunch (Free Gumbo!) on GiveNOLA Day and make your donation!

Create a Personal Fundraiser on GiveNOLA

Creating a Fundraiser on the GiveNOLA page, on behalf of Café Reconcile, gives you (and us) the ability to track donors that participate because you asked. It’s easy! And sharing it on social media starting May 1st will have a huge impact.

  1. Click here: https://www.givenola.org/reconcile-new-orleans
  2. Create an account
  3. It will ask for:
    a. Title – something like “Feed Your Soul at Café Reconcile” would be great.
    b. URL – You will be able to access and share your page using this URL. For example, if you enter “mycampaign” in this field, your unique URL will display as www.givenola.org/mycampaign. It can be anything but keep in mind the public will see it.
    c. Campaign Video – not mandatory, but if you can make a video and post on YouTube, then this is where you can share it.
    d. Summary – Pick a talking point above or write your own story as to why you support Café Reconcile.
    e. Photo – If you can come to lunch or stop by in the next couple of days and get a photo of yourself under our sign that would be a GREAT photo for this spot. Otherwise, you can use the attached print out with a selfie, or anything you want!
    f. Goal – this is your fundraising goal, perhaps mention it in your summary.
  4. Need help? Bring your laptop to the café on Tuesday, April 30th at 10am and we can do it together! Or contact Janet at 504-934-1637.

Rest assured you and your donors are in good hands.  Every donor will receive a personalized thank you e-mail within 2 hours of making a contribution on GiveNOLA Day.  They will also receive a formal thank you letter within a week.  And, a note from a student within three weeks.
