Mission Statement

The Baton Rouge Area Foundation unites human and financial resources to enhance the quality of life in Southern Louisiana.

Description

  • The Foundation connects philanthropists with nonprofits to make sure the needs of our communities are met. Our donors, for instance, fund music programs for children, provide money to feed the hungry and underwrite education reform. Last year, our donors and the Foundation made thousands of grants worth more than $28 million. We help donors create a lasting legacy and fulfill their philanthropic goals.
  • The Foundation begins and manages civic leadership projects. Our Plan Baton Rouge initiative underpinned the rebirth of downtown Baton Rouge and is returning life to neighborhoods between LSU and the city center. The Foundation’s latest civic initiative is The Water Institute of the Gulf, which is an independent nonprofit that will provide a scientific response to the problem of eroding marshes and rising seas.
