The foundation's priority is to fund organizations in, or projects
which take place in, the Shreveport area, but it may also fund requests
from other areas, especially those with the potential to be replicated
in the Shreveport area if proven effective.
The foundation is particularly
interested in supporting those programs which are small, local,
innovative and perhaps even unpopular.
We leave to others the funding of grants to individuals and the support of large national causes
such as the American Cancer Society, the American Red Cross and
the United Way.
Our Nondiscrimination Policy
