GNOF Exxon-Mobil Fund

The purpose of the GNOF Exxon-Mobil Fund, a Donor Advised Fund of the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is to improve the quality of life for people in Algiers and St. Bernard Parish. An advisory committee of business and civic leaders meet annually to review grant requests in all program areas relative to the designated areas.

For St. Bernard Parish, the Committee typically recommends grants that do not exceed $10,000, although larger grants may be made in extraordinary circumstances. For the designated area in Algiers, the Committee typically recommends grants that do not exceed $4,000. View Algiers boundaries here.

The Fund will provide for the following types of funding:

  • Grants that support new, creative, or beneficial programs;
  • Capital fund grants for new construction or major renovations;
  • Seed money grants to help start a new organization which responds to an important opportunity in the community;
  • Bridge grants to sustain organizations experiencing financial hardship.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

  • While priority is given to nonprofit organizations based in St. Bernard Parish or Algiers, nonprofit organizations serving the St. Bernard or Algiers area will be given consideration.
