Foundation Releases Study on The State of Nonprofits in Southeast Louisiana 2021

The State of Nonprofits in Southeast Louisiana 2021 – Adaptability And Racial Equity in Year One of the COVID-19 Pandemic is now available for download! The study found that nonprofits successfully adapted to meet the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and that many even expanded their services to support the people of our region. The study also found that while a sizable percentage of nonprofits in Southeast Louisiana have Black and BIPOC executive directors, executive team members, board chairs, and board members, there is still a racial leadership gap within the region’s nonprofit sector, particularly in arts and culture organizations.
