Let's Do Good Together

Page 1



2018 will mark the 300th birthday of the city that anchors this great region. As we celebrate this milestone, we must marvel at the progress. Together we’ve made the Greater News Orleans region one of the nation’s most treasured gems, and together we’ve survived unfathomable hardship, strife, and loss, each time emerging stronger and more vibrant than before. However, we must also meet this well-earned pride with an honest acknowledgement of just how much remains to be done. After all, if we look back on eras past—when many of our neighbors were excluded, ignored, or marginalized—as our region’s best days, we will have desperately failed. Our region is at an inflection point. Twelve years post-Katrina, the question is no longer whether we’ll survive, but whether we’ll thrive. Here at the Greater New Orleans Foundation, we’re setting our sights high. We’re striving toward communities that are economically prosperous and culturally diverse, that are sustainable and environmentally sound, and that are fair, equitable, and inclusive for all who call this region home. We are choosing to believe the Greater New Orleans region’s best days lie ahead.


If only belief were enough. Forward progress will require brave leadership, bold action, creative problem-solving, dogged determination, and, most importantly, one another. As you’ll see in the coming pages, our communities can drive meaningful change on both an individual and systemic level when we pool our time, talents, and resources. And we’ve only scratched the surface. As we head into this next chapter for our region, we welcome your continued partnership with arms more open than ever, because we know we cannot do it alone. Because doing good happens together. Being better happens together. And creating a vibrant, sustainable, and just region for all can only happen together. With the utmost gratitude, Christian T. Brown, Board Chair Andy Kopplin, President & CEO

PLAYING THE STARTING NOTE On February 7th, 2017, powerful tornadoes ripped through New Orleans East causing catastrophic losses. Local legend and musician Troy Andrews (Trombone Shorty) was stunned and stricken by the damage to his beloved hometown. He learned that the Greater New Orleans Foundation had activated a Tornado Relief Fund and quickly joined us to establish a partnership to match every dollar donated to the relief effort up to $50,000. Not only was the match fully met within 48 hours; Andrews had ignited a spark bigger than he 2 ›› G N O F . O R G

could have imagined. Inspired by Andrews’ generosity, the Foundation’s Tornado Relief Fund went on to attract more than $400,000 in donations which provided muchneeded shelter, water, and warm meals to hundreds in need, helped remove debris and repair damaged schools, and supported volunteer operations. Reflecting on the groundswell of support, Andrews says, “I was so amazed by how people opened their hearts and their wallets to help our neighbors in the East, many of whom are still rebuilding and recovering.” 3 ›› G N O F .

E S TA BLISHING PHIL A N T HROPIC ROOT S Bill and Christa Payne set up a donor advised fund at the Greater New Orleans Foundation soon after they arrived in New Orleans two years ago. They say the fund not only helps them to feel connected to their new home but also instills philanthropic values in their three daughters who have a hand in selecting grant recipients. “They help us research and volunteer at the organizations so they can experience the impact of our investments first-hand,” says Christa. “Our parents and grandparents passed down a culture of giving to us, and we want to do the same for our daughters. It’s important for them to see that even small sums of money can make a big difference,” adds Bill. 4 ›› G N O F . O R G

A C ATA LYS T FOR CH A NG E “I spent 34 years of my life under separate but equal,” says Dr. Norman Francis, the legendary education leader and former President of Xavier University. “I saw how segregation marginalized people who were poor and uneducated, especially minorities. And we still haven’t closed those gaps.” But Dr. Francis, who recently created his own fund at the Greater New Orleans Foundation, is inspired by those working to remedy discrimination and disparity across New Orleans. “The Greater New Orleans Foundation is a jewel in our region’s efforts to address quality of life issues. The Foundation serves as a catalyst for the city’s nonprofits and small donors, those who may not be writing the biggest checks but together can enhance quality of life for the whole region.”

HE LPING YO U T H FIND HOPE For Peter Wilson Jr., philanthropy is a family affair. Each year Peter, his brothers, and his cousins come together to select a grant recipient from their family fund that was created by their parents. From the start the younger generation knew they wanted to focus on bridging the opportunity gap for at-risk youth. “We’re a city with so much promise, with such a rich and diverse culture. Our city’s youth shouldn’t wake up every day feeling hopeless, worried that their only options are a grave or a jail cell,” Peter says. “This fund has been a great way for my brothers, cousins, and me to use our unique skills and motivations to enact real change.” 6 ›› G N O F .

S AV ING LI V E S A ND HE A R TACHE Following the tragic and untimely death of 41-year-old New Orleans native Wilkins Kearney, his friends and family sprang into action. “We knew we needed to do something,” says Wilkins’s wife, Lilla. For years Wilkins’s close friends had contributed to a Greater New Orleans Foundation donor advised fund, the focus and purpose of which now seemed abundantly clear. Bolstered by generous donations at their annual “Wilkapalooza” fundraiser, the Human Fund aims to save lives by preventing suicide and providing much-needed but often cost-prohibitive support services for surviving loved ones. “Even if we save one life, we’ll be successful. With that life, we also save the pain and heartache of so many others who would have been left behind.”

THE GREATER NEW ORLEANS FOUNDATION CELEBR ATES THE GENEROUS INDIVIDUAL S AND FAMILIES WHO ES TABLISHED FUNDS IN 2016. Laughing Buddha Fund — Suzi Stone has never lived in New Orleans, but New Orleans is always in her heart. Growing up, she had the opportunity to visit New Orleans often and has deep family roots and ties to the community. This is one of the many reasons she considered the Greater New Orleans Foundation when searching for a home for her donor advised fund. Suzi can now easily give to the causes across the United States that are most important to her without having to keep track of numerous tax receipts. MacDonell United Methodist Children’s Services Fund — Nothing matters more to the MacDonell Children’s Services Board and Executive Director Kevin Champagne than providing a safe, loving environment for children in need in the Bayou Region. They wanted to ensure the MacDonell Fund was safely invested so it would grow and support their efforts. Now they can focus on what’s really important: helping children. Harry G. and Mary Ann Barkerding Family Fund — Harry and Mary Ann Barkerding know the importance of giving back to their community. Soon after returning to New Orleans after living in Austin, they wanted to give back to their hometown. A friend suggested the Greater New Orleans Foundation to them as a way to streamline their giving. Now they support the causes that matter the most to them.

Charles and Elizabeth Wetmore Fund — Funded by a generous gift through the will of Elizabeth Bisland Wetmore, the Charles and Elizabeth Wetmore Fund was established to support sufferers of respiratory diseases. It also supports medical research to find a cure or improved treatment for those who experience these diseases. The Doctors Estrada Fund — As incredibly busy doctors, Leslie and Lance Estrada have dedicated their lives to helping others. They were searching for a way to do even more for the community. A friend told them a donor advised fund could make their giving easier, so they partnered with GNOF, enabling them to have more time to focus on their patients. More for the 504 Fund — In early 2016 a group of women found themselves wanting to do more for the community. As a result they founded More for the 504, a giving circle made up of women who are passionate about New Orleans. More for the 504 encourages women’s involvement in philanthropy by combining members’ financial resources in order to gift substantial, annual donations to local nonprofits that provide direct support to the community. Carnival Krewes Fund — Few things embody the spirit of giving more than Carnival. People come from all over the world during Mardi Gras to witness our generosity. Krewes for Karnival’s First Responders, a group with representatives from many of New Orleans’ krewes, formed the Carnival Krewes Fund to continue giving throughout the year to organizations that are essential to New Orleans’ vibrant culture.

Lee and Kathy Randall Fund — Lee and Kathy Randall learned about donor advised funds and the Greater New Orleans Foundation through their financial advisor. They partnered with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to establish their fund. Now they can support their favorite nonprofits without having to keep track of multiple receipts.

The Doris Z. and Roger T. Stone Botanical Garden Fund — The Botanical Gardens at City Park are a beautiful attraction enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. The gardens offer many educational programs for the community to enjoy. The Fund was established by the Zemurray Foundation to honor the legacy of its two former chairpersons who were avid botanists and outdoor enthusiasts. The Fund will support research and educational activities at the Botanical Gardens in perpetuity. Harris Elledge Fund — The brothers of Sigma Alpha Epsilon at Tulane University wanted to do something when their fraternity brother suddenly passed away at the age of 22. Harris is remembered fondly by his family and friends for his loving and caring nature. Partnering with the Greater New Orleans Foundation allows them to make charitable grants to nonprofits which exemplify Harris’ generous nature. Katie and Jimmy Gibert Fund — As a partner at Southern Wealth Management who specializes in income, gifts, and estate planning, Katie Gibert advises her clients on how best to minimize their tax burden and achieve their philanthropic goals. To help streamline their own annual giving, Katie and Jimmy established a donor advised fund at the Greater New Orleans Foundation. Now they have the flexibility to give to their favorite nonprofits and to manage both the timing and tracking of those donations.

SPARC Fund — Adrian Manriquez knows the importance of grassroots organizations making a positive impact in the community. He partnered with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to establish the SPARC Fund. He hopes to provide local nonprofit leaders with opportunities to learn new skills, helping them to build long-term stability in their organizations. BCF Disaster Recovery Fund — The Bayou Community Foundation (BCF) was established in the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav, Ike, and the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill to strengthen and sustain our precious Lafourche, Terrebonne, and Grand Isle communities. Thanks to the generosity of many donors, BCF has awarded more than $800,000 in grants to nonprofits in Terrebonne, Lafourche, and Grand Isle since 2013 to meet the region’s most critical needs. The BCF Disaster Recovery Fund was established to provide emergency aid to this area, ensuring that donors are able to help the unique Bayou Region prepare for and recover from future disasters and emergencies. You’ve just read about individuals and families whose experiences and values have shaped their giving. What about you? If you would like to open a fund with cash, stocks, or other assets—and start directing grants immediately to your favorite nonprofit organizations—contact Senior Philanthropic Gift Officer Allie Betts at 504.598.4663 or allie@gnof.org.

Greenlight New Orleans is helping our community’s residents rethink water management. With the installation of one of their hand-painted rain barrels at homes like Miss Beverly Bell’s in New Orleans East, Greenlight New Orleans is proving that any household can take simple steps to lessen street flooding and reduce the financial and environmental costs of pumping out rainwater. “People are overwhelmed these days; they don’t know where to start,” says Greenlight New Orleans Founder and Executive Director Andreas Hoffman. “We want residents to know we hear them, we understand, and we’re here to help.

Following graduation from NOW-funded Children’s Hospital Advancement and Mobility Program, Kendric Creecy--NOW’s first male graduate--happily joined the Children’s Hospital cast department. And he says he’s not stopping there. “I wouldn’t be in this job that I love without the training I received thanks to NOW, and this has inspired me to go back to school for nursing and become a Physician’s Assistant.”

That’s why BreakOUT! wants to increase the number of LGBTQ-affirming services available in New Orleans and ensure that LGBTQ youth know where they are and how to access them. Supported by GNOF’s new LGBT Fund, BreakOUT! is training youth-serving agencies on how to establish and implement policies for informed, compassionate, and effective care.
