Red Dress Charities

I think that it is fair to say that our ability to fund so many worthwhile New Orleans organizations is totally dependent on the number of people that register to participate in the Red Dress event. We encourage you to get all of your friends and supporters to join us in partying for New Orleans on August 13th. One of the questions on the application form is: How many people in your organization took part in the Red Dress this year? We are all working and partying together here. We need your support.

If you are a local charitable organization, or have a favorite charity we would love to hear about it and possibly provide you with a Red Dress Grant. Grants of up to $5,000 are made available to local 501c3 groups that are not nationally funded. The application is simple and will be available online at this site in September. We only take grant applications during the month of September so please come back then to apply.

Here is a list of the local New Orleans charities that received Red Dress Event grants.
