Foundation for the Mid South
We are in the business of improving lives in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi. It is a daunting task because the Mid South is home to 30% of the nation’s poverty, which has eroded the well-being of our communities, education and health systems, as well as financial security. These deficiencies—if left unhindered—will continue to grow and deny further opportunities to better conditions for families today and future generations.
The Foundation for the Mid South was established to bring together the public and private sectors and focus their resources on increasing social and economic opportunity. Our approach is straightforward and long term: enable communities to develop solutions to better conditions and improve lives.
The Foundation for the Mid South focuses on strengthening four priorities that, we believe, are the bedrock for prosperous communities and a strong region.
Our Education work supports efforts that help students succeed academically—by strengthening traditional education systems and programs and community institutions serving students.
In Health and Wellness, we work to promote physical and mental well-being in order to comprehensively improve the health status in the region.
In order to break the cycle of generational poverty, our Wealth Building work is helping people become financially secure so they can move up the economic ladder.
In Community Development, we invest in and partner with efforts that enable communities to grow and prosper.
A strong foundation of education is essential not only to individuals but to the economic success of our region. Many companies struggle to find graduates with necessary skill sets. It is important that we achieve greater graduation rates, increased college enrollment numbers, and stronger workforce preparedness levels. The national high school graduation rate is 78.2%, but Mid South states have lower rates. Males of color are particularly at risk; nationally, only 52% of black males graduate from high school in four years.
Foundation for the Mid South offers enrichment opportunities and builds skills necessary for success in high school, college and the 21st century workplace. We aim to ensure that all youth, regardless of income, geography or race, receive equitable access to an effective learning environment.
We partner with individuals and organizations committed to improving high school graduation rates, college preparedness and life outcomes of students. Current areas of focus include: tutoring, coaching, career development and learning and study strategies.
- Academic Success for All Students
- Focusing on academic strategies and enrichment opportunities to help students learn in effective and innovative ways.
- Academic Success for Males of Color
- Identifying critical skills to improve academic performance and life skills for young men of color.
Programs and information to enable residents to manage their finances effectively and grow their wealth.
Mid Southerners make poor financial decisions because they do not have adequate financial information and training. This limits residents’ ability to acquire wealth and creates a generational cycle of poverty.
The Foundation for the Mid South will use financial competency and asset building programs to improve the financial stability of approximately 300,000 households in the region.
We provide programs and information to enable residents to manage their finances effectively and grow their wealth:
- Financial Competency
- Giving individuals and families the tools they need to make smart financial decisions.
- Asset Building
- Assisting families to accumulate and preserve long-term productive assets, such as homes, education and businesses.
Improve individual and community health outcomes in chronic disease, mental health, and access to care.
Mid South residents have more health problems and lower life expectancy than those in other parts of the nation. Unhealthy behaviors and lack of health services contribute to these problems. Approximately 30% of adults and 20% of youth in the Mid South are obese, leading to high healthcare costs, lost wages, or even premature death. Approximately 1 million adults suffer from poor mental health, stressors which decrease learning or the ability to work. If not addressed, they can develop into serious mental disorders.
Foundation for the Mid South seeks to improve health for individuals and communities. Health is not a standalone issue; it is an interrelated part of improving our region, enabling people to learn effectively and improve their economic situations.
We aim to improve individual and community health outcomes through:
- Healthy Behaviors to Reduce Obesity
- Increasing access to and use of physical activity and access to fresh, healthy foods.
- Mental Health Awareness and Access
- Helping individuals identify everyday stressors and connecting them to resources and services to address their mental health needs.
- Access to Healthcare Resources
- Ensuring individuals have access to healthcare services and knowledge to make informed decisions.
Building the skills and knowledge of communities to transform themselves.
Residents need vibrant and thriving communities to be successful, but the quality of communities in the Mid South continues to lag behind the rest of the nation. Mid Southerners need safe and affordable housing, jobs that pay a living wage, access to post-secondary education and spaces where children can play.
Foundation for the Mid South believes that the solution to regional challenges lies in building the skills and knowledge of communities to transform themselves. When individuals, organizations and businesses engage in the change process, they are able to build the community they wish to see, creating vibrant places to live, work and play.
Our community development work key focus areas:
- Community Enrichment
- Increasing safe, affordable housing, improving green space and parks and preserving the local environment and culture.
- Economic Development
- Strengthening the economy through workforce education and training, small business development and industry growth.
- Leadership Development
- Building the skills and capacities of local organizations working to strengthen both adult and youth leadership.
- Mississippi Delta Workforce Funding Collaborative
- The Mississippi Delta Workforce Funding Collaborative is a partnership of philanthropic, public sector, private sector, and community leaders working to improve job growth and retention for all of Mississippi. We support the development and implementation of sector based workforce partnerships in key in-demand industries. Our goal is to increase the skills and education of unemployed and/or underemployed residents of Mississippi. We work to increase the Mississippi residents’ skills, thereby allowing them to receive better paying jobs and better provide for their families.
- The Foundation for The Mid South is an Entrepreneurial Support Organization chosen by the Delta Regional Authority to participate in a learning cohort around engaging merging business leaders.
We support high-quality solutions that promote education, physical and mental health, financial security and the growth and prosperity of communities.

The Foundation awards grants to qualified nonprofit organizations, mostly in the Shreveport and Bossier City region of Louisiana. It has supported a wide range of interests, including but not limited to education, housing, health care, social services, the arts and community development.

The Foundation’s priority is to fund organizations in, or projects which take place in, the Shreveport and Bossier City region, but it may also fund requests from other locations, especially those with the potential to be replicated in its geographic scope if proven effective.
The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting those programs which are small, local, innovative and perhaps even unpopular. The Foundation leaves to others the funding of grants to individuals and the support of large national causes such as the American Cancer Society and the American Red Cross.
Connected Healthy Lives
Every day, people face a multitude of choices that may affect their health and quality of life. In many communities, these choices are limited by factors beyond a person’s control. That is why we are expanding healthy choices for communities and creating more equitable health outcomes by working to eliminate the social and structural barriers to health.
- We create healthy emotional connections as a vital part of our holistic approach to care.
- We shape a healthier approach to nutrition that supports lifelong health and wellbeing.
- We deploy our knowledge and resources as stewards of good health in communities across the country.

Disaster funds provided by the Humana Foundation, along with matching donations made by Humana Inc. associates, are primarily directed to immediate relief and long-term community health and recovery.

Ms. Foundation For Women
Ms. Foundation for Women
The mission of the Ms. Foundation for Women is to build women’s collective power in the U.S. to advance equity and justice for all. We achieve our mission by investing in, and strengthening, the capacity of women-led movements to advance meaningful social, cultural and economic change in the lives of women. Ms. has six grantmaking initiatives, one of which is the Birth Justice Initiative.
Birth Justice Initiative
Our Birth Justice Initiative aims to:
- advance equitable birth outcomes and experiences;
- strengthen the capacity, organizational infrastructure, and financial stability of grassroots Black, Indigenous and women of color-led birth justice organizations; and
- expand the frame of birth justice to support intersectional movements and strategies that recognize the full spectrum of experiences and identities in birthing, parenting, and family building.
We believe that Black, Indigenous, and women of color (including trans women and non-binary people) are key experts and should be decision-makers in shaping policy and culture change around birth justice. By investing directly into organizations led by and for women and girls of color, we are ensuring that the movement to address racial based disparities in healthcare, including birth outcomes and experiences, is led by those who are impacted most. Strengthening the collective power of communities of color is critical to addressing the root causes of these disparities and advancing birth justice for all.
The U.S. has one of the highest maternal mortality rates of all developed nations and Black women die at three to four times the rate of white women in birth – one of the widest racial disparities in women’s health. Systemic racism, implicit bias, and anti-Blackness all contribute to the significant disparities in birth outcomes among Black, Indigenous and birthing people of color. Moreover, the spectrum of intersectional issues that comprise birth justice and the ability to have children and parent with dignity, are not only limited to the birth process.
As such, the Ms. Foundation’s Birth Justice Initiative invests in organizations who represent the full spectrum of birth experiences including–but not limited to–preconception health, mental health and wellness, infertility, abortion access and abortion care, comprehensive sex and sexuality education, non-racist culturally affirming and gender expansive healthcare, access to birth workers of color, access to lactation support and services, postpartum health and wellness, grief and loss care and support, and sexual assault prevention and survivor support services. Organizations supported collectively utilize a range of movement building strategies to advance birth justice—such as narrative change, policy and systems change, advocacy, leadership development, direct service among others. And finally, they work at the intersection of birth justice and other movements, such as disability justice, youth justice, LGBTQIA+ justice, environmental justice, economic justice, and criminal legal reform.
During this cycle, Ms. will provide one-time grants ranging from $50,000 to $100,000 to selected organizations not currently receiving funding from Ms.’ Birth Justice Initiative. The grant period will comprise two years.
