Our Mission

The spirit of giving is contagious.

And with so many people in need – it’s vital that the habit of giving back spread like crazy.

in 2014, Thomas Morstead and his wife Lauren started What You Give Will Grow as a way to help the New Orleans community and beyond – especially children battling cancer – and encourage the giving spirit.

To date, the organization has given well over $2,500,000.00 to a wide range of causes and gotten thousands of people involved along the way.

The mission of What You Give Will Grow is to improve the lives of those in need through support of local causes and organizations in the New Orleans and Gulf South communities, with a strong focus on children’s charities and cancer initiatives. Through What You Give Will Grow’s efforts in the community, we hope to inspire others to join us in spreading a spirit of giving.
