Foundation for Louisiana is the people's foundation.
We tackle the issues that most deeply impact our communities, advocating alongside Louisianans to chart our own futures. We are transparent and accountable to our community around what we fund, who we fund, and how we make funding decisions. We have strong, stated, actualized values.
We use our power responsibly, acknowledge it, and push it outward. We are Black-led and honor the knowledge of people of color, women, two-spirit and transgender individuals—and the many ways in which these identities intersect. We are bold in our analysis and movement towards freedom, amplifying the lived experiences of Louisianans closest to the work. We bring people with us, and people bring us with them.
COMMUNITY WISDOM We are guided by the experience of those most impacted by injustice. They are also best informed to lead positive change in their communities.
COURAGE We persist in the face of fear.
INTEGRITY We are clear, open and honest about our goals, values, and strategies.
COMMITMENT We are steadfast and consistent in our pursuit of FFL’s mission.
