Hurricane Katrina New Orleans Recovery Fund Grant Awards


This fund will focus on the rebuilding of the civic structures of greater New Orleans that will provide basic human services to residents in those devastated areas.  The Baton Rouge Area Foundation has established a contractual relationship with the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) that creates a vehicle for them to distribute all amounts in the Hurricane Katrina New Orleans Recovery Fund in conjunction with their own newly established fund.  Total donations to this fund to date total $4.6 Million, all of which have been conveyed to GNOF under this agreement.

The contractual relationship requires that all grants made by GNOF of these funds strictly meet the original intent of the fund, and that detailed reporting of grant allocations will be provided to the Baton Rouge Area Foundation for reporting on this web site.  The Baton Rouge Area Foundation remains committed to being transparent and accountable to our donors, as well as ensuring that this fund is administered for maximum positive community impact.  Additional details on this developing situation will be distributed as available on this web site, and anyone with questions is encouraged to contact the Baton Rouge Area Foundation.
