We are all set for GiveNOLA Day on Tuesday, May 5th and we hope you will donate to the FOC this year!

Since 1956, Friends of the Cabildo has supported the Louisiana State Museum with volunteer and financial assistance. In the last year, we have donated over $10,000 to restore a coat of Lt. Col. William Sutherland Hamilton from the War of 1812, completely restored a bust of Renato Beluche for the Louisiana State Museum’s exhibit on the Bicentennial of the Battle of New Orleans and are currently fundraising to conserve Clarence Gatemouth Brown’s violin that was heavily damaged in Hurricane Katrina.
