What We Do

Our efforts all point to one thing, making the Who Dat Nation stronger. While we have a big focus on children and cancer initiatives, What You Give Will Grow is always looking for other ways to give to our community .

How We Do It

Giving back is not always about money invested. What You Give Will Grow is so fortunate to have cultivated an amazing group of volunteers, partners, and sponsors. We leverage resources of time, money, skills, services, and goods to make the best possible impact on the community around us.

Our Programs

Team Comeback Kids

When the devastating flood waters descended on Louisiana in August of 2016, it was clear that there would be a lot of people who needed help. WYGWG Launched Team Comeback Kids and provided over $1,200,000.00 is schools supplies to teachers and students.

Holiday Giveaway

Every year Thomas and a group of Saints players trade their helmets for santa hats and go deliver gifts to children and women stuck in hospitals across New Orleans.

Game Day Heroes

The smiles we put on the faces of these boys and girls fighting cancer, isn’t all this program does. It also connects families with other families going through the same experience. It provides lasting support systems and lifelong friends.

Louisiana Child Life Council

The Louisiana Child Life council is made up of hospital directors in charge of coordinating activities for the children in their facilities. They help celebrate birthdays, plan fun activities, and find creative ways to bring joy to these kids. While doctors fix broken bones, these guys fix broken smiles.

Gleason Gras

Steve Gleason is a huge inspiration to New Orleans (and beyond). He is also one of the major inspirations that urged Thomas Morstead to start WYGWG. Each year, we host Gleason Gras in his honor.

Prom of Hope

As the name indicates, this program hosts on a prom for kids – specifically those fighting cancer or blood disorders. But it’s a lot bigger than a dance.

WYGWG Fitlot

We teamed up with FitLot a New Orleans based nonprofit organization that is dedicated to helping communities throughout the country find the resources they need to plan, build and program their own outdoor fitness parks.
