What is GiveNOLA?

GiveNOLA Day is an annual 24-hour online philanthropic event hosted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation.  Non-profits like DPF and SKDP enroll and accept donations through the GiveNOLA online portal.  Because of you and donors like you, GiveNOLA has consistently been DPF's second-largest fundraiser and helps provide support to the Athletic Department at St. Katharine Drexel Prep!

The mission of the Drexel Prep Foundation is to continue the legacy of St Katharine Drexel and Xavier University Preparatory in support of St. Katharine Drexel Prep School. This year we hope to continue our goal of helping revitalize the athletics department with continued contributions to the gymnasium as well as to the needs of our student athletes.

Our student athletes and their coaches have done so well with so little. The teams have won LA State basketball and track championships despite little funding and few resources. Their gym is in need of repairs and renovations. The scoreboard needs to be replaced as does the air conditioning system. The girls practice and play winning seasons in a gym too small to meet the LHSAA requirements to host games. The track team has no field. While making facility improvements and additions are of the highest priority, DPF would also like to reward the 2018 SKDP Yellow Jackets, the Louisiana High School Sports Associations Marsh Madness Girls Basketball State Division III Champions. Because of a limited athletic budget and diminished fundraising seasons, the girls have received nothing to commemorate their victory. Ideally this would be the time!

DPF and the SKDP hive thank you!
