Applications now open, deadline is Rolling


Category:  Emergency

This application process has no deadline date.  Organizations will be notified of funding decisions within 60 days.

The Greater New Orleans Foundation would like to remind agencies of the United Way that they are eligible to apply for grants from the Albert N. & Hattie M. McClure Fund held at the Greater New Orleans Foundation.

The McClure Fund supports the emergency bricks & mortar projects (e.g., repairs, replacements, and additions to facilities) of eligible United Way partner agencies. The intent of the McClure Fund is to fill the funding gap between major capital expenses requiring a capital fund drive and minor capital needs which can be planned for and included in an agency’s annual operating budget. Because of the limited nature of these funds, priority consideration will be given to those requests that are capital, in nature, and respond to a crisis and/or emergency. The guidelines and priorities were affirmed at the Council of United Way Agencies on October 6, 2004. The Greater New Orleans Foundation will consider grant requests up to $15,000.00.

The Albert N. & Hattie M. McClure Fund accepts only electronic application submissions through the Foundation’s online portal. The Greater New Orleans Foundation’s technology partner, Foundant, has created a brief tutorial for applicants that may be viewed here. It is highly recommended that all applicants review this video before beginning a new application in order to better understand the electronic submission process. Proposals that are not submitted electronically may not be considered.
