The Impact of Impact 100 I’ve been here in New Orleans for about a year and I just love this city. When I learned about Impact 100, I got connected right away. It felt really good to connect with other women doing the kinds of giving, work, mentorship and board service I’m interested in. I love and appreciate this community and what needs to happen here. I knew I could learn a lot from these women and they would help me plant my feet and learn about the city. There is a real generosity within Impact 100 and GNOF—financial generosity of course, but also generosity of spirit. I’m dedicated to recruiting more people of color to engage with GNOF and let organizations with black men and black women involved know that this is your foundation too. There are seats at the table that you need to take! I’m also passionate about nurturing the holistic development of young black boys. I have two brothers and I know the challenges our young men face. I don’t think of them as an “at risk population,” for me it’s just about loving people. Every boy needs something different, not just financial support but sometimes summer camp, music lessons or just someone to talk to. Being part of helping organizations that help lift our boys up feels good to me. Jeanette Davis-Loeb
$800K in 7 years The women of Impact 100 have awarded $800K in seven years to nonprofits of the Greater New Orleans region.

“I’m a Silverback Man!” When a Silverback mentor asks you, “How you doin’?” you know instantly what he means. And you respond, “Graduating with a 3.5”, talking about your grade point average. You reach out for a high five or a handshake and declare, “I’m a Silverback Man!” Every day, we have 150 volunteers working with 560 boys at 17 schools, and everything we do revolves around helping each other become better men. It’s the same team of guys that go to the same school, to be with the same kids, every week. Our mentors share stories about being boys just like these kids and share their challenges and opportunities. Boys identify a new pathway through these stories. We help
them get set up with a curriculum that we know works. What we do is validated by research and science. Eighth grade is a pivotal year when a boy’s brain is developing as much as it was when he was between three and five. In eighth grade, boys are actively seeking who they will become and their brains are developing pathways and connecting the dots. Our boys make it cool to do well in school. They become leaders at school, drum majors in band, captains on sports teams, active on student councils. And they become leaders at home too, helping their moms and younger siblings. Really they become great citizens. The support we receive from GNOF is amazing.
I attended the Executive Director Intensive training and it was so eye-opening to spend time with other, much more experienced CEOs. We got financial training, our board members have participated, and more. GNOF has helped us become a well-managed non-profit that looks forward to and anticipates the future. GNOF feels like home. It’s a place you can go if you need some advice or inspiration. Someone over there knows something right now that I don’t know yet that I need to know, but I will soon, and I’ll know who to call! The people at GNOF have passion and commitment and promise. It’s very inviting and empowering to be involved. Lloyd Dennis, Silverback Society

GiveNOLA Day is a one-day online giving event. For 24 hours, everyone who loves Greater New Orleans can support their favorite local causes by donating to one or more participating nonprofit organizations. In its inaugural year, more than $2.2 million was raised for more than 300 participating nonprofits from more than 19,000 donors. In 2018, $5.6 million was raised from over 48,000 gifts for 765 nonprofits.
Nonprofit Leadership and Effectiveness (NLE) is GNOF’s program that has strengthened the governance, leadership, and management of thousands of nonprofits in our region to better deliver programs that serve the community. None of this work would have been possible without generous partners and sponsors like The Kresge Foundation, JP Morgan Chase, Chevron, The Kellogg Foundation and early investments from The Open Society Foundation and Marguerite Casey Foundation.
NLE has provided coaching to over 500 Executive Directors and provided leadership development training to over 200 Executive Directors, and emerging leaders.
Strengthened governance practices, deepened engagement of hundreds of board members.
Established 7 communities of practice increasing partnerships between organizations.
Here For Our Boys, 24 Hours a Day, 365 Days a Year, For Life Growing up without a father is a challenge facing thousands of our boys in New Orleans. And for far too many, the challenge will prove overwhelming. We are here for these boys, providing mentorship, education, recreation, camaraderie, cultural enrichment, emotional support and helping fill the void for fatherless young men in New Orleans. Son of a Saint is a family. Boys enter between age 10 and 13 and they are with us for life. Most of our boys lost their fathers to violence, incarceration or other difficult circumstances. We connect each boy with a mentor who helps them with anything they need. From mental health services to working through trauma
to career exploration. And the plan is customized for each boy, depending on where he is at and what he needs most. Our boys also work together on different volunteering opportunities at food banks, city parks and do their own part to give back. And we’re where we are today because of GNOF. GiveNOLA Day is really important for us, and we’re so proud to be one of the organizations receiving the most donations. Give NOLA helps introduce us to so many new people, so they can get interested in our work, get inspired and get involved. Bivan “Sonny” Lee,, Son of a Saint

New Orleans Town Gardeners Legacy Fund Like every beautiful flower, we started from a seed. An anonymous donor offered us a $500,000 match for every dollar we raised. We accepted the challenge and went after it. It was an opportunity for women to step up to the plate and feel proud to support our club. Women told us they felt very proud of themselves, reaffirmed what we stand for and what we value. It’s been so rewarding, so joyful. It’s an honor and privilege to be part of this club. We love to garden and we care about the environment. And the ladies here, we like to get our hands dirty. We’re not sitting around sipping tea! Together, we fund a variety of projects from rebuilding gardens, planting native trees and flowers, to the Edible schoolyard New Orleans and Grow Dat Youth Farm, to funding scholarships in conservation. The Edible Schoolyard New Orleans and Grow Dat Youth Farm programs impact so many children. They learn about planting and preparing soil and fruits, they learn about nutrition, and they also build self-esteem, a sense of responsibility and leadership. We’re also advocates of coastal restoration—we provide scholarships for an intern to participate in coastal restoration studies. Our hearts are open and we’re putting our roots down to keep our city beautiful and healthy for our children, grandchildren and future generations. Anne Milling, Betsy Nalty, Caroline Reily, & Sybil Favrot

Leave a Legacy in St. Bernard Parish The Story of the St. Bernard Kiwanis is the story of meeting immediate, urgent needs in our parish, but making sure people’s needs will be met tomorrow, next year, 20 years from now and for as long as they are needed. Years ago, we knew we needed to endow some funds to protect our projects in the parish. While the work we are doing to help kids read, give grants to teachers and invest in scholarship funds needs to happen right now, we also wanted to protect this work in the future. So we used GNOF to help us set up an endowment. We brought together people who wanted to support programs
today and also to create a legacy. We are very happy with our partnership with GNOF. The performance of funds has been consistent and met our objectives perfectly. And it feels amazing that every time there is a need for something, there’s money to do it. Plain and simple. We draw from the endowment and fund a project. Ours is the story of strong and steady planning that also makes sure more money than ever will support our parish. It’s very satisfying to support our neighbors like this. We know that no matter what happens, the money will be here. Robert Showalter, St. Bernard Kiwanis
We’re grateful to the many nonprofit organizations across the region that partner with us by establishing funds for their benefit or trusting us to manage their board reserve fund or endowment. Two of the great groups that partner with us are the Jefferson Council on Aging, located in Jefferson Parish, and MacDonell United Methodist Children’s Services in Terrebonne Parish.

One Foot in Our History, One Foot in Our Future Kingsley House is 123 years young. Our history is rich. We were the first settlement house in the South. The first professional early learning childhood development center in Louisiana. First summer camp. First public playground in New Orleans. We led the charge on disease prevention and control. We were at the forefront of the equal rights and civil rights movements. Today, we are leaders in anti-poverty work, both programmatically and structurally. And we are a hub for all kinds of social services in the deep south.
and helped us accomplish our ambitious strategic growth. We were able to ask the right questions and access the resources we needed. Immediately after our training, we made process changes that our board now loves. Our board learned to focus on what’s next, how to have better discussions in a more deliberate, intentional way. Being on our board is not about reviewing reports but about planning, strategizing, helping me figure out how to move the needle on critical anti-poverty work today and in the future.
GNOF has been instrumental in my personal growth and continues to influence the whole city in crucial ways. Governance training with GNOF allowed us to bring board leadership along in the evolution of our organization
I am also deeply proud to be part of GNOF because of their work to support the Campaign for Equity New Orleans (CENO) with the Racial Equity Institute, a new initiative started by four entrepreneurs tackling the social,
economic and ethnic inequalities that plague every community in our country. The fact that CENO brings the Race Equity Institute (REI) here to New Orleans and to our state is important to help us achieve the change we’ve been working towards for 123 years. I’ve done lots of diversity training across the country, at excellent places like Harvard, and the way CENO and REI does it is the best I’ve ever seen, anywhere in the U.S. Bringing that to New Orleans, and growing it here, with over 500 leaders participating…it’s amazing, it’s a game-changer and it’s transformational. I’m more hopeful now than ever before in my 25 years in this work. Dr. Keith Liederman, Kingsley House

Timothy and Karen Mackie Return Home to New Orleans We were born and raised here, went to public school here. Both our fathers were blue-collar workers, longshoremen, and our mothers were homemakers. And they instilled in both of us the importance of education. Along the way, they also encouraged us to play music and we both went to art school. Now that we’re getting towards retirement and slowing down in our lives, we realized as we reflect back about the importance of the arts to round out and shape your approach to the world. The arts are a way to understand history. Karen’s career was in technology so we also support projects that
help kids get early exposure to and understanding of tech. So we’re at a point where we want to find ways to give back, and giving to the arts, and giving to support kids and tech is what matters to us. At the end of the day it’s about changing children’s lives. We are realizing our parents’ and grandparents’ dreams. When we reflect back on the base they set for us, and the conversations we had with them, we are proud to carry that forward. It’s a very good feeling to send it forward another generation. Timothy & Karen Mackie

Hugh Seligman, Professional Advisor and Estate Attorney In my role as a lawyer, GNOF is a great way to serve our clients and help introduce them to charities to support. The work of GNOF is important for anyone interested in developing the city. The organizations we support together have impact in a variety of really crucial ways. When you feel that sense of civic responsibility, there’s no better place to look than here at home for great organizations to support. And people can see the results of that, right here in our own backyard. A healthy city has a healthy philanthropic environment. It’s key, from where I stand, for GNOF to be a driving force behind economic development. A place where businesses want to come and where our whole community benefits. I know GNOF also does important leadership training, workforce development and education. Also for me personally, I’m working to get more young professionals involved at GNOF. There are great opportunities for younger generations of professionals, and donors, to get involved. Hugh Seligman
If you help others give back, we’re here to help you. We appreciate those who help others. That’s why for over 90 years, we’ve been leaders in connecting professional advisors with giving strategies and vehicles that meet their clients needs. That way, we help advisors assist their clients with philanthropic investments that fulfill community needs and create a greater impact.

Preserving the Spirit of Charity Last September, GNOF and partners unveiled the Spirit of Charity Innovation District Strategic Plan â€“ a blueprint to revitalize the neighborhood surrounding the former Charity Hospital, create jobs, honor the Spirit of Charity Hospital, and create a model development strategy that will truly be equitable and inclusive for all New Orleanians. We continue to work with our business, government and civic partners to advance this potentially game-changing project. That includes the Spirit of Charity Foundation. Founded by the late Jerry Romig
in 1993, the Spirit of Charity Foundation has been committed to improving the quality of patient care in our community. This work to support and facilitate patient-centered care, promoting health and wellness, and advancing medical research and education through fundraising began to benefit the former Charity and University Hospitals, and now continues for the University Medical Center New Orleans. Hurricane Katrina marked the end of an era of the public Charity Hospital, but it only renewed the commitment of the Spirit of Charity Foundation to
supporting Charity Hospitalâ€™s mission while also raising the level of patient care for the people of New Orleans and the region. As GNOF leads the Spirit of Charity Innovation District process, we are proud to partner with the Spirit of Charity Foundation. Learn more at SpiritOfCharityFoundation.org.

The Gift of Giving Our fund was originally set up by Kendall’s parents as a gift. They have always been so generous with our family, and in the community, and we’re full of gratitude for that. By setting up this fund, they made the first step and then we chose to match it. And once we got into it, we realized the value and efficiency of the idea of giving through GNOF. You can participate in ways that work for you. It’s been a really positive experience. Gratification comes from doing good things for others. It’s a wonderful gift when you’re at a point in your life where you can be generous. We are inspired by the incredible local efforts here in New Orleans, especially those that are highly effective and tangible. Patrick Schindler & Kendall Winingder
“It’s a wonderful gift when you’re at a point in your life where you can be generous.” Patrick Schindler & Kendall Winingder

Couvillon Family Fund For 21 years, I’ve been managing the family foundation set up by my father and mother. And now, it’s just wonderful to see the third generation getting involved. It feels good to be passing along a philosophy to our grandchildren. For me, that’s more interesting than taking them on an outing! The most important part of our foundation is having our family work together to do good work and help others locally. We benefited from living here and we love giving back to the people that allowed us to be so lucky. We live here because we love it and it’s a great place to raise a family. Susan Couvillon
In October 2018, the Greater New Orleans Foundation hosted over 100 family members and professional advisors for three informational workshops with Sharna Goldseker, Executive Director of 21/64. 21/64, named for the ages when some family members may be joining or preparing to leave the family’s philanthropy table, specializes in serving charitable families as well as wealth and philanthropy advisors—so multiple generations can work, give and serve together more effectively.

Ashé Means The Ability To Make Things Happen Ashé, the ability to make things happen, comes from West Africa and it’s a lot like an affirmation, an “Amen.” And we draw our mission every day from that energy. We are here to know and honor and preserve and celebrate and practice and validate authentic culture, especially for people of African descent.
Our institution is a place that demands respect and resources for culture, and we’re here to have conversations about why that’s important. We work on our governments and our laws, but do we work as hard on our culture, our people, our diversity? What are the conversations we need to have today?
With GNOF as our partner, we’ve been on a 20-year journey to embrace human problems from a cultural perspective. Our existence started as an art exhibit at the contemporary arts center. It was an installation on the whole bottom floor, and people were moved by positive art about black folks and that started the conversation. We started a designated fund through GNOF and received grants over time to build our work.
Every week we offer programming for kids, women, men and elders. We have exhibits, performances, concerts, dance. Culture is about doing things together. That’s how families and neighborhoods become strong. And we want to extend this simple but difficult formula across our whole city.
And then the storm happened. 7/8 of our city was filled with water, but not us. We were on the ground, and we opened our doors. That redefined us. Since then, GNOF has continued to provide amazing support. You helped us buy our home. You’ve been a sturdy and steady partner over the years. I do not think we would be here, doing what we’re doing, if not for GNOF and people who made it their business to make sure we are here.
Carol Bebelle, Ashé Cultural Arts Center

What You Do In The First 72 Is Crucial The First 72+ is a non-profit that helps incarcerated folks and their families. We are called a “re-entry organization,” helping people transition to home from prison. We offer free transitional housing for 6 residents at a time for 6 months. In addition, we help with individual cases, we have a peer mentorship program involving over 300 people at any given time, we offer free legal services, we help with benefits, help people rejoin the work force, and we have up to 20 walk-ins every week. The good news is that more people are coming out of prison. But we are one of the only organizations that exists to help meet people right when they are coming home. Two years ago, we were a new organization without a long record of accomplishment. We competed in GNOF’s Pitch It! Innovation Challenge to launch
a small business incubator to help start and scale businesses with zero interest lending and credit building, all paid forward in a communal loan fund. We won PitchIt! that year and earned one of our very first competitive grants. The coaching, support and award gave our young organization a lot of confidence. We have the experience and knowledge to help people successfully return home. Most of our staff were formerly incarcerated. We believe in the principle that those closest to the problems are also the closest to the solutions. This is critical to ensuring empathy and understanding. Most recently, thanks to generous donors including a $100,000 grant we won from GNOF’s Impact 100 women’s giving circle, we are building a new
transitional house, allowing us to more than double our impact! Kelly Orians, The First 72+
“We believe in the principle that those closest to the problems are also the closest to the solutions.” Kelly Orians
$200K+ Now in its sixth year, Pitch It! The Innovation Challenge has invested over $220,000 to fund a novel approach, an innovative product, a new process, or an innovative service that supports a unique way of doing business in the nonprofit sector.

Vice President Joann Ricci Departs GNOF after Eight Years, Kellie Chavez Greene Promoted to Director of Renamed Nonprofit Leadership & Effectiveness Team In November, the Greater New Orleans Foundation announced that after nearly eight years leading the creation and development of a robust Organizational Effectiveness Initiative that has strengthened the governance, leadership, and management of thousands of nonprofits in the Greater New Orleans region to better deliver programs that serve the community, Vice President of Organizational Effectiveness, Joann Ricci is departing. “Joann has been an amazing builder, leader and strategic thinker for the nonprofit sector in our region,” said Andy Kopplin, Greater New Orleans Foundation President and CEO. “Under Joann’s leadership, the Foundation’s Organizational Effectiveness Initiative has provided high-quality and intensive trainings as well as coaching and technical assistance grants to close to 5,000 nonprofit
executives, staff, and board members across our region.” Kellie Chavez Greene has been promoted to Director of Nonprofit Leadership and Effectiveness. Kellie will oversee the Foundation’s program. Kellie joined the staff of the Greater New Orleans Foundation in January 2013 as a Program Officer for Organizational Effectiveness. Kellie’s responsibilities include designing and implementing programs to strengthen the region’s nonprofit organizations and to increase the effectiveness of the Foundation’s grantmaking. This work includes coordinating the Foundation’s learning opportunities, developing resource materials and training curricula, and managing the Foundation’s technical assistance grants. For nearly eight years, under former Vice President Joann Ricci,
the team has built organizational capacity of the Foundation’s current grantees and other nonprofits while building a healthy nonprofit ecosystem among the agencies in the 13 parish region served by the Foundation. The renaming of this important body of work to Nonprofit Leadership and Effectiveness (NLE) is to highlight our laser focus on helping nonprofits improve their leadership and effectiveness. Nonprofit Leadership and Effectiveness acknowledges the full depth and breadth of our work with both organizations and staff, as well as board leaders that manage and govern them. It is imperative that we work at all levels in the nonprofit ecosystem in support of a responsive, equitable, sustainable, and impactful nonprofit sector where both organizations and leaders are reaching their full potential.
