Start a Fund

Starting a fund is just the start of creating a long-lasting impact.

For over 90 years, the Greater New Orleans Foundation has been connecting generous people to the causes that spark their passion. As one of the most trusted philanthropic organizations in Southeast Louisiana, we work every day to drive positive impact through philanthropy, leadership and action. Our team of local experts manages more than 900 charitable funds, and that deep knowledge drives our commitment to delivering superior fund management and customer service.

When you start a fund at the Greater New Orleans Foundation, your charitable dollars support an institution that is uniquely positioned to pull together people, ideas and resources to improve the quality of life for our region.

As a fundholder, you are our partner. Our team of local experts will provide insight into the causes you care about and you’ll be the first to learn about the Foundation’s civic leadership initiatives.
