Grants to Northern Louisiana nonprofits for innovative programs that enhance the quality of life for Shreveport-Bossier City area residents. Letters of intent are due by January 5, and non-mandatory orientation sessions will be held between January 16 and February 6.

Funding is intended to assist organizations that are working to add opportunity, freedom of action and choice, self-betterment, and a climate for change to the lives of the people they serve.

The Foundation's priority is to fund organizations based in, or projects serving the residents of, the Shreveport area, but it may also fund requests from other areas, especially those with the potential to be replicated in the Shreveport area if proven effective.

There are no minimum or maximum funding amounts that an organization may request for funding.

Eligible organizations:

- Must be a 501c3 tax-exempt organization as determined by the Internal Revenue Service;
- Must adhere to Beaird Family Foundation’s nondiscrimination policy; and
- Must have submitted interim/final report forms at the time of LOI submission (if applicable).

Application Process:

Letter of Intent (LOI)

The LOI is the first step in determining whether an organization may be eligible to apply for a Carolyn W. and Charles T. Beaird Family Foundation grant. The LOI serves three purposes. It provides an overview of the organization, introduces the proposed project, and provides the organization’s budget and project’s budget. If the organization is invited to apply for a spring 2017 grant, the LOI responses will be considered along with the grant application; therefore, the Foundation strongly recommends that organizations carefully consider LOI responses.

LOI and Grant Application Process

The LOI must be completed by interested organizations through the Foundation’s online grant management system, powered by Foundant Grant Lifecycle Manager. Organizations will register in the system, if they haven’t done so previously, or log into their existing account to complete the LOI form. Organizations may access the system at

The LOI may be worked on in stages without submitting a final version immediately. The LOI requires an Executive Summary, narrative responses, and budget submissions. All LOIs must be submitted between December 1, 2016 and January 5, 2017, 11:59 PM CT. Upon LOI submission, organizations will receive an email stating that the Foundation received the LOI. If an organization does not receive a receipt email, please contact

All LOI applicants will be notified by email on January 16, 2017 of their grant application invitation status; please ensure the accuracy of the email on file. If the LOI is approved, the organization will be invited to access the online grant application on January 16, 2017. Thereafter, the invited organization will submit the grant application on or before February 6, 2017, 11:59 PM CT.
