The Selley Foundation

The Selley Foundation (“Selley”) is a donor-advised fund of the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Selley Trustees review grant requests in the areas of education, arts, and in certain cases the environment.

Selley supports nonprofits serving the greater New Orleans area with an emphasis on capital needs, but occasionally will consider programmatic requests. In the area of education, the Fund will support capital items and special programs for higher learning institutions and high schools with a record of excellence. In the arts, the Fund will support organizations that strive for excellence.

An organization must wait 18 months after it has been awarded a Selley grant before applying for another Selley grant. However, organizations that are not invited to submit a full grant application are welcome to reapply during any grantmaking cycle, but are encouraged to contact the Foundation staff about the practicality of a new funding request.

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