Grants typically ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 will be awarded in Louisiana to non-profit organizations for programs that benefit the community, specifically populations in need. The Foundation's present areas of focus are: Human Services, Healthcare, Education, and Prison Release. 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.
The Foundation also provides the following traditional types of grants: Program Grants, Capital Grants, and Bridge Grants.
Applying organizations should have plans for continuing the program/project once the funding ends.
