Transforming community through philanthropy.

Our Work

The Community Foundation provides a variety of charitable funds and gift options to help our partners achieve their vision for a stronger, more vibrant community. By bringing together fund donors, their financial advisors and nonprofit agencies, the Foundation is a powerful catalyst for building charitable giving and effecting positive change in our area. The Foundation serves Bienville, Bossier, Caddo, Claiborne, DeSoto, Jackson, Lincoln, Morehouse, Natchitoches, Ouachita, Red River, Sabine, Union or Webster parishes.

The Foundation offers the expertise and the structure to assist individuals, families and businesses in effective giving. We are available to help our donors’ financial advisors assist their clients in gaining maximum tax advantages while addressing critical community needs.

The funds managed by the Foundation are invested for the community’s benefit and then are returned to the community in the form of grants to a wide variety of charitable endeavors, from the arts to education to the social service sector.

The Community Foundation is pleased to open its doors to the community by allowing local businesses and organizations to use our new Community Central space. We envision this room to be used for collaboration and positive change for our community! 

Recognized for its commitment to integrity and sound financial practices, The Community Foundation oversees more than $135,000,000 in assets for our community’s benefit. We are committed to good stewardship of the funds entrusted to us. Sound financial practices protect investment principal from erosion, provide a steady stream of income for grants and add value to investment assets through growth. Legal and financial professionals, experienced staff and a strong Board hold us to the highest standards of excellence in the investment arena.
