Greater New Orleans Foundation

Established in 1983 with just $4 million in assets, The Greater New Orleans Foundation now has more $275 million in assets.  Since Katrina, the centerpiece of the foundation’s economic opportunity work has been its $25 million Community Revitalization Fund, which has helped to rehabilitate or create nearly 9,500 of units of mixed-income, mixed-use affordable housing in Orleans Parish.  The foundation is currently designing the next phase of this initiative, which will expand its focus from housing to family economic security by prioritizing skills training, job placement, financial literacy, asset creation, and other work critical to family self-sufficiency.
