"Love in Action" Black Philanthropy Month Mini-Grants


Foundation for Louisiana is proud to announce the launch of our "Love in Action" Black Philanthropy Month mini-grants in celebration of Black Philanthropy Month 2023. We understand the incredible power and impact of communities coming together, and we believe it's time to recognize and celebrate the remarkable contributions of Black philanthropy in Louisiana.

We are offering mini-grants of $500 to support Louisiana communities in hosting events or activities that commemorate and honor Black Philanthropy. These grants aim to provide the necessary resources for local gatherings, activities, and events that uplift and amplify the spirit of giving within the Black community.

Important Dates to Remember

Application Deadline: 11:59 PM July 15, 2023

Grant Winners will be announced on August 5, 2023, at the "Love in Action" Black Philanthropy Month Celebration hosted at the Andre Callioux Center in New Orleans, LA.

Together, let's make Black Philanthropy Month 2023 a memorable celebration of unity and generosity.
