About this funder:




The purpose of the Gert Town Community Fund, a Donor Advised Fund of The Greater New Orleans Foundation, is to enhance the quality of life for people in the Gert Town Community. An advisory committee of business and civic leaders meet annually to review grant requests in various program areas. Program areas include: children and youth; housing; older adult services including transportation; community leadership capacity building; adult education; and legal services (successions, taxes, or other housing matters).. In addition, the committee is interested in community beautification projects (i.e. tree planting, greenspace maintenance, and neighborhood cleanup). Only ONE application per organization will be accepted.
