Grants for up to $100,000 to improve the quality of life in Louisiana. The purpose of this funding opportunity is to support a wide range of community-based programs. Through this RFP, four types of grants are available: capacity building, program, capital and bridge grants. The Foundation’s present areas of focus are:
Human Services: The Foundation believes it is necessary for the community to identify and meet human needs. We support many different kinds of programs that work to make people’s lives better.
Healthcare: Quality healthcare is important to the whole community’s well-being. We support healthcare education and programs that give people the medical care they need.
Education: The Foundation focuses its support on learning and development from early childhood through high school. We encourage partnerships and activities that bring the community together to build on current strengths and work toward systemic change in areas that can improve educational systems and opportunities for children in our community.
Prison Release: Reducing the recidivism rate affects the entire community. The Foundation supports programs and services that prepare the incarcerated population for release into society with interaction in a community church and a relationship with God.
Of particular interest to the Foundation are the handicapped, both physical and mental, those afflicted with disease, disadvantaged youth, the hungry and the homeless. While care for the less fortunate is important to the Foundation, the Trustees will look particularly favorably on grantees addressing the root cause of the misfortune, and, where practical or possible, assist their targeted group to become self-sufficient productive contributors to the community.
