Why Partner with Us?



We are here for good! Since 1961, the Foundation has built a reputation for honesty and integrity. You benefit directly from our expertise in philanthropy, deep community knowledge, and highly personalized service. You will experience the joy of giving while we handle the administrative details.

Simplified Giving

The Community Foundation can help you maximize your charitable impact and tax deductions in one easy process. We accept a variety of assets and can manage large gifts. Whether you are new to philanthropy or have been a longstanding community donor, we will guide you in creating a philanthropic plan that achieves your goals and suits your personal timeline. The Community Foundation is your full-service hub for philanthropy.

Power of Endowment

Endowing your donation provides a reliable source of charitable income in perpetuity for our community. Your endowed donation will be invested along with the Foundation’s other assets by our expert investment advisors. By distributing only the earnings of your fund, you will be able to make grants to organizations annually while preserving the principal of your investment. This ensures that, like the Community Foundation, your fund is here for good.

Create a Legacy

As a Community Foundation donor, you join a network of community and civic leaders who are committed to identifying and investing in long-term solutions to North Louisiana’s greatest challenges. Your gift today is part of a vehicle that will drive change in our area for generations to come.
