Welcome to your Greater New Orleans Foundation Gratitude Report! Right now our region is facing unprecedented challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic. Jobs, healthcare, hunger—there’s no shortage of challenges, great and small, faced by GNOF and the nonprofits we support. As in years past, we are meeting the moment no matter what the moment brings— that’s leadership, that’s character, and that’s what we do every day. Before the current crisis, we were writing this gratitude

Character is defined by action not stature. Even in the midst of the devastating COVID-19 pandemic, we have the opportunity to rise above and stand greater than our current obstacles. The challenges facing our community are unprecedented. But the people of the Greater New Orleans region are caring and resilient. By working together and in partnership with our generous donors, we will rise to meet this moment with leadership, courage, and action. We know the path—we’ve been here before with other disasters and economic challenges. Yes, COVID-19 has unleashed great suffering and losses and has the potential to decimate even more lives and livelihoods before it is through, but we are confident in our community’s resolve, compassion, and experience. To that end, we will exhaust all of our energies and capabilities to stand, live, work, and rebuild greater than this challenge.

Greater Through Giving For everyone at the Greater New Orleans Foundation and our partners who are deeply connected to GNOF through their philanthropy, we know our role and civic contributions go well beyond grantmaking and simply pairing donors with dedicated causes. Through research and outreach, we bring together as peers individuals and organizations who are actively engaged in our communities. That’s how we affect change and make the most of each and every donation—not just by meeting the immediate need, but by investing our time and energy to create real partnerships that bring about demonstrable impact as well as holistic long-term strategies for organizational growth and sustainability. During the COVID-19 crisis, we are going above and beyond to activate and bring civic leadership to coordinate every tangible effort that can provide comfort and improve the lives of those in need.

Disaster Response and Restoration Fund Our Disaster Response and Restoration Fund drives our effort to support and sustain a nexus of voluntary and community organizations active in disasters and whose expertise we deploy locally, regionally, and beyond. With the capability to get dollars where they are most needed within 48 hours, we have pre-registered over 20 organizations from across Southeast Louisiana to receive expedited grants should they be active in responding to a disaster. Gifts to the Fund throughout the year from donors like you made us ready to respond when COVID-19 struck our region. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, GNOF has raised over $3 million for the Disaster Response and Restoration Fund and already awarded over $2 million in grants to nonprofits and individuals, focusing intently on helping our most vulnerable citizens when and where they need it most.

We’ve made grants to food banks and food pantries helping shut-in elderly, the homeless, and vulnerable families keep food on the table. We’ve provided personal protective equipment (PPE) to first responders and to those who staff our region’s homeless shelters and federally-qualified health care clinics. We’ve given grants to nonprofits helping small businesses stay alive and laid-off workers access unemployment and other benefits. We’ve invested in health care organizations working to expand testing, provide increased mental health services, conduct public health outreach, expand access to care, and eliminate racial disparities as we work to address the impact COVID-19 is having in our region. All of this is proof positive that with tremendously generous donors like you, the Disaster Response and Restoration Fund can continue to be a powerful force for good during one of our region’s darkest hours and most challenging times. In short, with your help, we are greater together.

Greater Together. Right now, we are focused on doing everything we can to come together greater than COVID-19. As always, we remain grateful for the ineffably generous support of our donors, but never more than this moment. Our work is made possible through your bold vision and partnership, which is why we ask you to please consider an additional gift to the Disaster Response and Restoration fund at WWW.GNOF.ORG/DONATE

Service and Hospitality Family Assistance Program At GNOF, we are humbled and proud to have created the Service and Hospitality Family Assistance Program with inspiration and generous leading support from trustee Mrs. Gayle Benson and the McIlhenny Company, maker of Tabasco® brand pepper sauce, and in partnership with the Louisiana Restaurant Association. With the additional support of Allstate Sugar Bowl, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation, and many more, we’ve raised nearly $1.8 million to provide grants of up to $1,000 for service and hospitality workers struggling to make ends meet while supporting their children and sometimes their elderly parents during the COVID-19 crisis. At the time of this publishing, almost 850 grants have been awarded to families of unemployed bar, hotel, and restaurant workers. The average annual income of those families receiving grants under this program is just $26,900, and most were raising between one and four children. Thanks to a partnership with the New Orleans Convention Center, the grant program has been expanded to benefit catering and event staffing workers unemployed due to COVID-19.

Nonprofit Support We know that our nonprofits need cash during the pandemic to meet critical needs and survive this challenging time. To that end, during the months of March and April 2020, GNOF and our fundholders made more than double the number of grants and gave out $3.5 million more than we did during this same time period in 2019. We’ve also held fifteen webinars and virtual town hall meetings to give over 1,600 nonprofit leaders the information they needed when they needed it most. We’ve addressed urgent issues like keeping employees and clients safe, updating HR policies, handling crisis communication, preserving financial stability, better using technology for meetings and business processes, and accessing the new Paycheck Protection Program’s forgivable loans.

GNOF Water Movement: A well of good works. The Greater New Orleans region has had a long, complicated and sometimes painful relationship with water. Too much and we flood; too little and we sink. Yet, our waterways also provide a livelihood for Southeast Louisiana and the Gulf Coast. Through years of mobilizing people, ideas, and resources, GNOF has championed an ever-widening berth of initiatives to improve urban water management and advance growth within Southeast Louisiana water economies while also working diligently to protect and restore coastal wetlands.

Technical Masterclasses: Water Management Know-How Starting in 2013, GNOF began facilitating trainings and workshops, even partnering with water management experts from other cities who had a deep understanding of stormwater management practices and green infrastructure. Over the next couple of years, GNOF visited cities like Austin, Philadelphia, and Milwaukee to further investigate best practices for water management. Along with developing a water management grants program, GNOF established and hosted a series of fully-subscribed lectures and workshops for urban planners, architects, landscape architects, and policy makers called the Urban Water Series: Technical Masterclass. One early advocate, Ella Delio, GNOF Director of Environmental and Regional Initiatives who joined GNOF to figure out how businesses can help solve social and environmental problems, recalls the trajectory of the water movement. “In 2013 and 2014, no one knew much about water issues.” But today, she can see the movement building momentum. “If we are going to survive the next 300 years, we have to transform the way we think about our environment. There is another way to live with water.”

“If we are going to survive the next 300 years, we have to transform the way we think about our environment. There is another way to live with water.” ELLA DELIO Director of Environmental and Regional Initiatives, Greater New Orleans Foundation

From the very beginning, GNOF worked to create a mutually beneficial collaboration with civic and business leaders and policymakers. One public official who became a water movement evangelist was Cynthia Lee Sheng, current Jefferson Parish President and former Jefferson Parish council member. As a council member, Lee Sheng attended many Masterclasses as part of the Urban Water Series, and insisted on continuing to attend personally even after she was elected as Parish President. The experience transformed her and she has remained an advocate ever since. “It was an invaluable experience for me and the training provided by GNOF helped shape my efforts to better understand and appreciate what we can do as leaders to help people live with water.” With a connection to GNOF’s water movement and because of the early investment, it’s no surprise that when elected, President Lee Sheng chose GNOF as the first organization to call to discuss water management issues and initiatives. This kind of connection demonstrates how GNOF’s investments in the water movement have informed and inspired leaders to put what they have learned to work in smarter water management practices and major investments in green infrastructure.

Strategic Grantmaking Builds the Water Movement When it comes to GNOF’s commitment to building a broad-based movement, the grant awarded to Coastal Communities Consulting is a great example turning dollars into action. Providing assistance and support to fishing industry families, Coastal Communities Consulting (CCC) works with some of the most financially-struggling people in the state. As an industry, fishing is vital to our

regional economy, and it continues to be a driving force behind Louisiana’s success in its tourism industry. And yet, through numerous weather incidents, the deluge of foreign imports, the 2010 Deepwater explosion, and an almost constant environmental upheaval, fishing has been one of the hardest hit industries statewide. Even with these substantial challenges, the largest barrier to fishing families remains easy, straightforward access to the information they need to navigate formal systems for support and to effectively communicate their needs. As CCC Executive Director Sandy Nguyen, who can often be found driving her truck across the Louisiana coast to personally visit and support fisherfolk, can attest, “fishing families know what is going on at the coast, but they need to be connected to what the state is doing, what efforts are underway and the decisions that have been made to impact the community.” When GNOF invested in CCC to open an office in Gretna, they understood that Nguyen and her team could help facilitate business and technical support for fishing industry families and help forge relationships that could improve their wellbeing and livelihood. As with the parable, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a

lifetime,” so does the CCC operate and it deftly illustrates how the GNOF investment is helping hardworking and resilient fishing families navigate the waters of financial assistance programs through effective one-on-one meetings and seminars. “GNOF partners with the people who are most connected to and trusted in the coastal communities,” Nguyen explains. “They’re committed and they get it.” So yes, the New Orleans region does have a long and laborious history with water. Water has defined our first 300 years and it will define our next 300 years. But through strategic efforts, GNOF is leading civic and business leaders in addressing the question of how we can live fully and robustly with water. That philosophy is precisely what guides the Urban Water Management and Movement—to create and sustain opportunity for economic vitality and be a catalyst for change by mobilizing people, ideas, and resources for good. From training local governments, nonprofits, and community leaders to providing grants for organizations on the frontlines of communities working with water to leading robust public education campaigns to spur action, GNOF is making indelible inroads for progress and creating lasting impact within the Greater New Orleans region.

“GNOF partners with the people who are most connected to and trusted in the coastal communities. They’re committed and they get it.” SANDY NGUYEN Executive Director, Coastal Communities Consulting

“It was imperative that the missions of the organizations— specifically continuity of care—were not detrimentally impacted during organizational changes. The resources made available through GNOF’s community relationships were instrumental in making this goal a reality.” KELLIE CHAVEZ GREENE Director of Nonprofit Leadership and Effectiveness, Greater New Orleans Foundation

The Merger of Family Services and CADA The recent merger between Family Services of Greater New Orleans (FSGNO) and CADA Prevention and Recovery Center (CADA) illustrates how NLE puts its mission of strengthening nonprofits into action. With over 120 years of service in the city, FSGNO was a hardworking nonprofit providing mental health services to adults and children. But in 2019, FSGNO found itself in dire financial straights and at risk of permanently closing its doors. In more breathtaking terms, then FSGNO board member and retired CEO and Chairman of the Board of Petroleum Helicopters, Inc., Carroll Suggs said, “With no funding, we were in debt up to our eyeballs.” In September of 2019, President and CEO Andy Kopplin connected Suggs and the FSGNO leadership team with Kellie Chavez Greene, GNOF’s Director of Nonprofit Leadership and Effectiveness for guidance and assistance. Kellie

“The leadership and training provided by the Greater New Orleans Foundation was pivotal in bringing CADA to where we are today.” JOYCE BRACEY, M.ED., LPC Executive Director, CADA Prevention & Recovery Center

immediately thought of CADA, a United Way Partner Agency providing substance abuse prevention, education, case management services, and mental health counseling. Not only was FSGNO’s facility located directly across the street from CADA, but CADA’s services naturally aligned and complemented those of FSGNO. From the first phone call, it seemed to be a win-win for both organizations and their clients. GNOF brought FSGNO and CADA together to discuss an immediate collaboration, and it quickly became evident that a consolidation was the most efficient, most impactful way forward. But not everyone was sure the merger was the right thing to do. There were legitimate concerns that the merger would diminish FSGNO’s legacy, but with GNOF’s leadership everyone came to appreciate that the best way to honor the FSGNO legacy would be to maintain robust services to clients and ensure the creation of an organization with stronger financial health. “I cannot speak highly enough or strongly enough about

G R AT I T U D E R E P O R T

the role GNOF and Kellie played in this merger. They gave us the courage and strength we needed to carry on,” Suggs said and adding, “Kind and empathetic…GNOF met FSGNO where we were in terms of understanding and ability.” At the very first meeting, CADA Executive Director Joyce Bracey was named joint ED of both organizations, tasked with leading the teams through the merger. Chavez Greene took the lead on guiding the process, providing an objective voice to both boards. “As a trusted leader to nonprofits,” Bracey commended, “GNOF was simultaneously an energizing and stabilizing force during what could have been a tumultuous time.” Both parties were determined to have no breaks in client care, and client services became the lighthouse for all decisions. To this end, GNOF quickly worked to secure a donor to give FSGNO immediate support, made its own grant to advance the process, and provided guidance for changes in staffing and operations. “It was imperative that the missions of the organizations—specifically

continuity of care—were not detrimentally impacted during organizational changes,” Chavez Greene said of the merger. “The resources made available through GNOF’s community relationships were instrumental in making this goal a reality.”

JUDY REESE MORSE

In addition to the practical services and financial assistance, GNOF drove the logistics of the merger and connected Bracey to much needed resources and partners that have had a lasting and long-term benefit to CADA and their clients.

A Perfect Fit: The Urban League and GNOF

President & CEO, Urban League of Louisiana

As President and CEO of the Urban League of Louisiana, Judy Reese Morse knows a thing or two about effective leadership and recognizes GNOF’s reputation for work done in support of nonprofit organizations. That’s why GNOF was one of the first organizations she contacted when she took the position at the Urban League of Louisiana. While she initially applied for an executive leadership grant, Morse quickly saw the value of asking GNOF’s Nonprofit Leadership & Effectiveness (NLE) program to provide leadership coaching for her team of 16 mid-level managers. With a mission of creating opportunity to ensure quality education and access to information, employment, entrepreneurial and economic inclusion opportunities, and shared dignity under the law, the Urban League and GNOF made for a perfect fit. And when it came to the NLE training, Morse especially appreciated GNOF’s ability and willingness to tailor the program to meet specific needs of her team and organization. Even with COVID-19—and what she calls her team’s “pandemic pivot”—Morse sees the connection between the training and how well it prepared her team’s response. Saying simply, “I am absolutely certain that the skills gained from the coaching program have directly contributed to the quick, innovative efforts of our team to continue serving our community.” Morse explains that while nonprofit work can be challenging, she understands that no region is as resilient as it can be unless it has a very strong nonprofit sector and that only happens with “strong nonprofit leaders, and coaching programs like GNOF’s contribute directly to the prosperity of a region.” Through the NLE program, GNOF continues to help nonprofits like the Urban League maximize their impact on the community at large.

SUPPORTING ORGANIZATIONS Supporting Organizations at the Greater New Orleans Foundation play an important role in addressing the greatest challenges of the region. Supporting Organizations are separate nonprofit organizations with IRS tax-exempt status. They have a separate board of directors, manage their own investments, and award their own grants. With professional management and oversight of all aspects of the supporting foundation’s administrative, investment, and grantmaking activities performed by GNOF, donors and their families can concentrate on philanthropic interests without worrying about the details.

It is with deep appreciation that I write the closing statement, and I consider it an honor to crystalize our year. And what a year it has been! One defined by growth, propelled through philanthropy, and now challenged by crisis. For all of this: the good, the bad, the great, and for everything we have been able to accomplish, I am tremendously proud. Many, many thanks to Christy Brown (Immediate Past Board Chair) and Andy Kopplin for their keen leadership and an endlessly heartfelt thank-you to our brilliant and talented GNOF team for their passion and tireless determination to be greater together. As in previous years, the Gratitude Report tells the stories of the Foundation’s work and provides our donors and our community the tangible examples of what we can achieve together. And now, in this time of the COVID-19 pandemic, your donations and support are more crucial than ever. Every day, we exist to do much more than help donors contribute to their favorite causes. The short and tall of it is that your generosity and partnership makes all of our work possible. It allows us to enable the greater good by being so entrenched in the nonprofit sector that we can quickly connect local and national donors to on-the-ground efforts that need support. As board chair, I know we all take stewardship very seriously. It means the world that we are trusted by you to make the Greater New Orleans region better every day. Moving forward, we will continue to make a demonstrable difference in our communities by identifying problems, working together, and creating change that makes a positive difference in our lives. I look forward to the year ahead and know that together we will be greater for the entire New Orleans region. With Thanks,

LEANN O. MOSES Board Chair, Greater New Orleans Foundation
