Greater New Orleans Foundation Awarded $1.1 Million Grant
“The foundation on Wednesday announced the award of $1.1 million to six regional nonprofit organizations to aid in emotional and economic fallout from the spill. The funds, expected to be handed out by the end of next week, are largely directed toward fishers and their families.
The Greater New Orleans Foundation is responsible for granting $5 million of the $20 million Fund for Gulf Communities, which an anonymous donor established through the Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. Marco Cocito-Monoc, the New Orleans foundation’s director of regional initiatives, said the $5 million must be committed by the end of the year.”
