What You Give Will Grow
INSIDE THE INDUSTRY: NON-PROFIT
Thomas Morstead and other volunteers visit and deliver gifts to patients in the hospital for the holidays
What You Give Will Grow began in 2014 thanks to Thomas and Lauren Morstead and their dedication to helping the New Orleans community and beyond. The organization, which has to date given over $2,500,000 to a myriad of causes and encouraged countless volunteer efforts, has spread through the city and the Gulf South community and hopes to spread further.
What You Give Will Grow excels at inspiring excellence and generosity in the people around them, and then turning to a charity in need—of funds or volunteers—and giving an answer to that need. Thanks to a high level of expertise among the leadership team, all of whom donate their time, the organization sees a titanic rate of return on their work with only a 4% administration cost.
The foundation plans to continue their annual event, Prom of Hope, which provides teens with cancer, blood disorders or both with a prom night that they’ll never forget. What You Give Will Grow, which already has a relationship with Louisiana’s nine pediatrics hospitals and Child Life departments, also plans to expand their mission to areas where they see a need for assistance.
After Morstead’s on-field actions led to national attention and a donation surge in 2017, the organization sees it as their mission to grow their services and reach in a meaningful way to allow them to create the largest impact they can—and to inspire people to give in as many ways as they can. What You Give Will Grow will help any donation, whether financial or a donation of time and effort, find the perfect way to grow and blossom.
