At the Greater New Orleans Foundation, we look to create a resilient, sustainable, vibrant region in which all individuals and families flourish and the special character of our communities is preserved, celebrated and supported.

The Greater New Orleans Foundation serves both donors and grantees—linking people who want to give with the needs and aspirations of the greater community.

We provide civic leadership by pulling together people, ideas and resources; we increase the effectiveness of nonprofit leaders and organizations; and we partner with donors to help them achieve their charitable goals, whether that means starting a fund, creating an endowment, or just making a gift to benefit the community.


GiveNOLA Day will be Tuesday, May 2nd. This is the region’s 24-hour, online giving event that inspires people to give generously to over 700 participating nonprofit organizations. Check out to see if your favorite nonprofit is participating.

Impact 100 is the women’s giving circle that makes a $100,000 transformative grant to a local nonprofit organization every year.


Open a Fund. Join other like-minded philanthropic individuals and families by opening a donor advised fund. Receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from your fund to your favorite charitable causes over time.

Go Beyond Cash. Gifts of appreciated stock, real estate, retirement accounts and business interests are great ways to achieve tax-savvy giving, while preserving your cash. Your tax advisor can work with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to help you make gifts from your most strategic assets.

Be a Partner in Philanthropy. When you join the Greater New Orleans Foundation as a Partner in Philanthropy you’re enabling the foundation to undertake civic leadership initiatives in workforce development and environmental sustainability.


The mission of the Greater New Orleans Foundation is to create a thriving community for all.
