An endowment gift to the Greater New Orleans Foundation today provides a brighter picture for our region's future. When you make a donation to our endowment, or establish an endowed fund, you give a gift with both immediate and long-term benefits.
Endowed funds are invested. A portion of the annual income from the investment is used to address immediate needs related to the causes you care most about. The remaining funds are reinvested to ensure indefinite support.

An Example of How It Works
Longtime supporters Susan and Charlie have two goals: First, they want to make sure GNOF continues to receive support after they're gone. Second, they want to memorialize Charlie's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jones.
Susan and Charlie make a $25,000 donation to GNOF, which we invest, and each year, a portion of the income from the invested money will be used to support our mission in honor of the Joneses. Plus, Susan and Charlie qualify for a federal income tax charitable deduction on their taxes.
