Leadership & Engagement
As expressed in our mission statement, Foundation for Louisiana is committed to investing in people as well as practices that are grounded in the wisdom of the residents – those with deep roots in the social and cultural environment of our state, and those who have chosen to make Louisiana their new home. Through our TOGETHER Initiative, the foundation builds capacity in individual civic leaders and the organizations they represent. This capacity takes the form of new networks, skills, and financial resources to help them achieve their own missions and create impact in their local communities.
For us, engagement occurs in multiple stages and dimensions. Our resident leaders engage with each other – learning about neighborhoods and causes that are different than their own but often interrelated. These leaders also deepen their engagement with their own members and potential members. More broadly, their participation in foundation programs gives them more opportunities to engage with elected officials, public servants, and a host of decision-makers who influence their lives.

When Foundation for Louisiana's 2014 Environmental Sustainability working group met to develop a project focused on New Orleans' Claiborne Avenue Corridor, their first challenge was simply to decide what they meant by "sustainability." As Jeff Supak of Global Green USA's New Orleans office explains, participants brought different perspectives – some cultural, some neighborhood, some environmental, and some simply tired of repeated street flooding from New Orleans' typical "gullywasher" summer rainstorms.Support Projects like these,
The Livable Claiborne Community Ambassadors program is just what the name says: an opportunity for residents of the Claiborne Avenue corridor to engage with their neighbors on community issues. But it's equally valuable as a transportation safety program, since its focus is giving neighborhood residents a voice in making their neighborhood streets safer for biking and walking.Support Projects like these,
