If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the Greater New Orleans Foundation, establishing a memorial or tribute fund is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute fund will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising GNOF for its tireless efforts to better his community.
Sarah decided to establish a fund in her father's memory using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at GNOF thanks to the fund, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
