Helping others strengthens our community and our world

 4 2019 AFP Award Recipients

EACH NOVEMBER, COMMUNITIES across the country celebrate philanthropy (literally, the “love of mankind”) and recognize the many acts of compassion and charity Rolfe McCollister, Jr. that happen every day among us. For our part, we have assembled this special Giving Guide to introduce you to organizations that are making a difference in our community by providing hope and healing to those who need it most. The end of the year is a time when many companies and individuals traditionally make donation decisions and also plan for the year ahead. We hope this publication will be helpful to you as you close your year and plan your own philanthropy for 2020. The 28 nonprofits featured in these pages share their mission, funding, projects and events—and hopefully will inspire readers to donate or volunteer their time and talents as well. The Greater Baton Rouge chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals celebrated its 29th National Philanthropy Day this year and is hosting a special luncheon on Nov. 12 at the Renaissance Hotel to honor the outstanding philanthropists in our community. inRegister magazine is proud to again serve as a presenting sponsor for this event. The 2019 honorees are featured on page 4. We salute them and all those in the Capital Region who work every day to build a stronger community. All of us at Business Report, 225, inRegister, and 10/12 Industry Report appreciate the generosity of readers like you and the amazing nonprofits and charities in this guide. We also want to thank our sponsors this year— East Baton Rouge Parish Library, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital, and Baton Rouge Youth Coalition. I encourage you to browse this Giving Guide and connect with the causes that speak to your heart.

FROM THE SPONSORS

Library helps nonprofits with fundraising tools

T

he East Baton Rouge Parish Library offers a variety of resources for nonprofit organizations at the Grants Center. Did you know that 90% of domestic foundations don’t have a website? Foundation Directory Online, only available at the River Center Branch Library, gives you access to these hard-tofind funders, plus the most effective tools to organize and manage your foundation fundraising process. Our Grants Librarian can assist you with your search, whether you are a grant seeker, grant-maker, or just curious about the grants process. For an appointment, call (225) 389-4964. We also host free programs periodically for grant seekers. The Library also offers a variety of free tools that can help nonprofit organizations assess and strengthen their business model, perform needs assessments, research

funding opportunities, locate community partners, and provide skills training and workforce development for staff. These resources are available free 24/7 in the Digital Library. A consultation via Small Business Services (SmallBusiness@ebrpl.com) will help your group create an effective strategy, whether it’s enhancing your own skills as a grant seeker, writing a business plan, getting reliable and relevant local statistics, or finding out about potential corporate funders. All you need is your Library card!

New hospital a beacon of hope and healing

B

rightly standing six stories tall just off Interstate 10 between Essen and Bluebonnet, Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital opened its doors October 5, serving as a beacon of hope and healing for children throughout Louisiana and the Gulf South region. Our new, state-of-the-art hospital and attached medical office building will help us to reach our goals of leading the state in quality, research and patient care. With a regional network of experienced, highly trained physicians, nurses, providers and team members, the hospital will extend the ministry of lifesaving pediatric health care to Louisiana’s children and beyond for years to come.

With the help of nearly 60,000 donors making gifts ranging from $1 to $1.5 million, we were able to exceed our initial fundraising goal. We now turn our attention to raising support for life-changing programs such as intensive care, surgery, emergency/trauma, child life, pediatric development and therapy center, and hematology/oncology. The best is yet to come,

TREY DUNBAR, MD President Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Health

BRYC to celebrate a decade of persistence

T

he Baton Rouge Youth Coalition prepares highachieving, under-resourced high school students to enter and excel in college, combatting the unacceptable reality that 14 percent of lowerincome students in the U.S. secure bachelor’s degrees. Of BRYC’s 76-person Class of 2019, 89% matriculated to four-year colleges, while 8% transitioned to two-year colleges and 3% to technical schools. They secured $16 million in scholarships, some remaining local and in-state and others venturing to Stanford, University of Southern California, Northeastern University, Boston College, Emory, Georgia Tech, and beyond. In 2019-2020 BRYC will celebrate its 10-year anniversary and drive a campaign to ensure our next decade. At the center of that campaign is the word

PERSISTENCE, underscoring that BRYC is about longterm success. Our 373 alumni, who represent nearly 60 colleges and live, work, and study in more than 20 states, remain in college at a rate of 86 percent. BRYC too has persisted—from a fledgling engine-that-could to a well-oiled operation of 18 staff members and 130 volunteers serving 250 youth across nine school districts. Ages nine and 10 are when nonprofits are likeliest to fold. BRYC is charging through its decade milestone, stronger than ever, preparing for continued expansion. Warmly,

LUCAS SPIELFOGEL BRYC Executive Director

  FUNDRAISING/EVENTS PALLIATIVE CARE of Baton Rouge is a home support service provided by medical professionals who specialize in advanced illnesses.

MISSION STATEMENT Manship Theatre at the Shaw Center for the Arts endeavors to enrich the lives of audiences of all ages by presenting and promoting extraordinary and diverse arts and cultural experiences. Providing the highest standard of excellence with extensive opportunities for education and enjoyment, the Manship Theatre aspires to be locally connected, nationally recognized and globally relevant.

MANSHIP THEATRE RELIES on corporate sponsorships and individual donations to bring the best of the performing arts to Baton Rouge. The annual Red Carpet Gala benefits the educational and outreach programs that provide students the opportunity to see professional, live performances at the theatre and access to teaching artists in their classrooms. Scholarships are also funded through Gala proceeds, providing those who may not otherwise be able to attend Manship summer camps the opportunity to do so. Manship Theatre offers a variety of events each season, ranging from concerts and family shows to art exhibits and screenings of Oscar-nominated films.

  VO LU N T E E R I N G/G I V I N G THE SHOW MUST go on and it would be impossible without fantastic volunteers. Volunteer ushers ensure that patrons enjoy their experience by greeting guests and guiding them to their seats. A great perk of this opportunity is watching performances for free! If interested in volunteering, please call our ticket desk. Manship Theatre also benefits from volunteerism through the dynamic leadership of our Board of Directors, who meet quarterly, guiding the organization on a successful path.

DO YOU LOVE live music and want to have first access to tickets? Become a member today and never miss out on any of Manship Theatre’s stellar concerts. Does your company want unique marketing opportunities with the ability to reach a wide audience? Or want to do something special for your clients and employees? Sponsor a show! Are receptions, concerts and an open bar your thing? Join us for our annual Red Carpet Gala.

Our goal is to reduce the number of food insecure individuals and households throughout our community by collecting, purchasing and distributing food through our 115-plus agencies, which directly feed those facing hunger.

GIVE. DONATE. VOLUNTEER. WHEN YOU GIVE - YOU ARE MAKING A DIRECT IMPACT IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS. Your Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank is committed to the mission of feeding the hungry by providing food and educational outreach through faith-based and other community partners. In the 11 parishes we serve, more than 129,000 individuals are food insecure and 36% of them are not eligible for federal nutrition assistance. Food insecurity means that an individual does not know where or when they will find their next meal. Food insecure households may not always be food insecure, but it may reflect a household’s need to decide between basic needs - such as housing, paying bills and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods. You can make a difference in their lives by simply giving food, donating funds or volunteering your time in service to others. Join us soon to learn more because Together We’re Fighting Hunger.

medicine services, and other programs, encompassing every form of aid that alleviates suffering and promotes dignity and integrity. Our philosophy is to give a hand-up, not a hand-out, so that those served have the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty and homelessness.

“Not giving a hand-out, but giving a

hand-up

of compassion & hope”

W

hen you see someone on a street corner with a sign that says, “Homeless- Need Help,” your first instinct may be to hand them a cash donation, but we do not recommend that approach. Many people are homeless because they have lost a job, become disabled, and have no family or friends to turn to, but some are homeless because of mental illness or problems with addiction. What they all need is a safe place to stay, people who care, and a chance to get back on their feet. That’s the purpose of the St. Vincent de Paul “Hope Card” - to tell those who are in a situation of homelessness about the services we provide. Feel free to cut out our Hope Card above or visit https://svdpbr.org/hope-card to print and keep in your pocket or car. Rather than providing cash, our Hope Card can provide linkages to services to help someone overcome homelessness.

GIRL SCOUTS

  GOALS GIRL SCOUTS IS the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. Each year more than 12,000 girls in our council participate in programming that offers them chances to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success. Your philanthropy goes to several critical needs—training and resources for volunteers on whom the Girl Scout model relies, the maintenance and improvement of our camp properties, and financial aid for girls to ensure that cost is never a barrier to participation in Girl Scouting.

INFORMATION ADDRESS: 8305 Tom Dr. Baton Rouge, LA 70815 PHONE: 225.456.3505

OUR SINGULAR GOAL is to provide adaptive bikes to children and young adults with special needs such as Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Battens Disease, Charge Syndrome, Down Syndrome, Autism, etc. These bikes change lives and we will continue to provide them because we have learned that they promote inclusion and build confidence.

  FUNDRAISING/ EVENTS WHAT STARTED 12 years ago as a “Bikes for Christmas” project quickly turned into a yearround endeavor. More than 320 bikes have been delivered since 2008, and that is possible because of the individual donors and corporations who have realized they can be the change for these families of children with special needs. We are fortunate to have amazing donors who have hosted softball tournaments, tennis tournaments, school fundraisers, honor rides and donor matching to benefit MFF.

services both in-house and in the community. These services are accomplished through support calls, networking and workshops. Disability-related supports and referrals are available to anyone at any time. Understanding the importance of awareness and acceptance of individuals with disabilities in the community helps us achieve our ultimate goal of inclusion.

Building Families, One Child at a Time... At St. Elizabeth Foundation, our focus is helping to build families and to assist birth mothers. We understand that there is stress on both sides, whether deciding how to handle an unplanned pregnancy or deciding to adopt. We know that the process is not alway easy, but that’s where we come in.

THE NATURE CONSERVANCY works around the world to protect important lands and waters so that nature and people can thrive. For the Louisiana chapter, this means constructing oyster reefs in Calcasieu Lake, restoring critical wetlands in the Atchafalaya River Basin, restoring and managing longleaf pine forests, and much more across the state.

Our many projects reflect the rich variety of natural systems that support people, plants, and animals throughout Louisiana. We want to conserve Louisiana’s freshwater, forests, and coasts, not just for their own sake, but for their ability to enrich our lives and fulfill our needs.

  FUNDRAISING/EVENTS OUR DONORS AND partners are often invited to participate in field trips and volunteer events at our beautiful preserves throughout the state. There are opportunities to go on guided tours with our conservation staff, to explore Louisiana’s natural treasures, and participate in activities like planting trees and bagging oyster shells for reef restoration. Many of our preserves—Abita Creek, Cypress Island and Grand Isle—are open for the public to explore!
