LOUISIANA FUNDING SOURCES
LOUISIANA RESOURCES & TOOLS

Louisiana is as rich in nonprofit grant funding sources as it is in vibrant culture. Because the state government relies on nonprofits to bring crucial social services to its residents, there are a significant number of diverse grants available to nonprofit organizations. Want to know how to win grant funding? Look no further! We’ve put together the best available resources to help you to get nonprofit funding in Louisiana. One of the most important Louisiana nonprofit hubs is the Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations (LANO), which is the “go-to” organization for information, tools and resources.

While a vast number of foundations exist throughout the state, there are some key players leading the conversation around Louisiana philanthropy. The Community Foundation of North Louisiana, Greater New Orleans Foundation, Baton Rouge Area Foundation, Central Louisiana Community Foundation, and Foundation for Louisiana are all leaders within the Louisiana nonprofit funding landscape, and are crucial resources for anyone interested in foundation funding.

A Few Words About Word Limits

Everybody from Voltaire to Bill Clinton is credited with the quip: “If I had more time I would have written a shorter letter.” The truth buried in the quip is one that contemporary proposal writers grapple with. Many foundation application forms now routinely ask for the whole story, complete with details, in a 100-or-500-word box. It’s so easy to rattle on and on about your program, so hard to say it succinctly.

How Long is a Long-Range Plan?

Nonprofits know they need plans. Like any other organization, they have goals and objectives, work to do, resources to gather and manage. This doesn’t happen in a vacuum or on the spur of the moment.
