<p> Foundation for Louisiana (FFL) is a social justice philanthropic intermediary founded in 2005 as the Louisiana Disaster Recovery Foundation to invest in the immediate recovery of Louisiana’s communities after Hurricane Katrina. While FFL was founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, our founders recognized the need to address the longstanding inequities that have shaped life outcomes for the most marginalized of Louisianans. Our programs grew in response to these needs, and today FFL focuses on racial justice, climate justice, criminal justice reform, economic opportunity, LGBTQ organizing, and support for Louisiana's vibrant arts and culture via: </p><p>·<i> Investment: </i>We redistribute resources to on the ground projects, many of whom cannot access traditional philanthropy. Each year, FFL makes grants to support organizations and projects throughout Louisiana in our key program areas. </p><p>· <i>Power building: </i>We build the capacity of our partners and grantees to effect change in their communities. Our signature programs, LEAD and Together, convene emerging and experienced community leaders to provide them with training related to organizing, advocacy, policy change, leadership, public speaking, and group facilitation to tackle issues of climate change, police accountability, health disparities, housing access, and more. </p><p><i>· Collaboration:</i> We develop collaborative initiatives through leveraging public and private partners to impact change, support public policy initiatives, and provide critical fiscal sponsorship and management to external projects and special initiatives. </p><p>Since its inception, FFL has invested $55 million in more than 250 mission-critical nonprofit organizations working across the state towards building a more just Louisiana. As a social justice philanthropic intermediary, FFL’s work unapologetically advances racial justice while moving Louisiana forward. The foundation engages communities in both program co-design as well as its grant-making process, in order to expand opportunities and move communities towards a more just future. </p><p><br></p><p> </p><p> </p>
