Desire Street Ministries
Desire Street started its ministry in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans in 1990. A ministry seeking solutions for communities throughout the southeast. Desire Street works to revitalize under-resourced neighborhoods through spiritual and community development.
By partnering with organizations leading this challenging work, Desire Street helps develop thriving and sustainable ministries for long-term impact.
Last year’s Desire Cup raised more than $300,000. Those donations went towards developing more leaders in under-resourced neighborhoods. It also allowed the organization to add another key coaching position.
The goal of this year’s Desire Cup is to match the $300,000 from last year in order to add up to six new ministry partners by June. All ministry partners receive full-time coaching, organizational development, leadership assessments and retreats, as well as important social capital. This enables the expansion of their own networks of supporters.
Individual tickets are available for $500. It includes the opportunity to mingle with Bulldogs and Gator Greats. Former coaches, and other celebrity guests. The age-old rivalry continues on the green, as Bulldog and Gator players are paired up with participants in Ryder Cup format Anyone can participate virtually by donating to the 19th hole online.
