    The Women's Philanthropy Network (WPN), a fund of the Community Foundation of North Louisiana, is seeking applications from programs with clearly defined outcomes that address school readiness and/or student achievement, including but not limited, to literacy services, behavioral health, or other wrap-around services. Applicants should utilize evidence-based best practices and have a track record of success. 

    Preference will be given to innovative programs that serve children from birth to 12th grade, that address the needs of under-served populations, and that demonstrate collaboration with other nonprofits, faith-based organizations, business entities, and/or government. Preference will be given to groups that can leverage matching funds on the federal, state, or local level. The WPN plans to award one large grant in the range of $50,000 – $100,000.

    Eligibility Criteria

    • Applicant must be a 501c3 organization or a unit of government which provides charitable functions related to education.
    • Applicant must file an annual Form 990 with the IRS, if required by law.
    • The proposed project must serve individuals in Caddo Parish.
    • Applicant must have conducted an independent audit within the last three years.  Non-audited organizations may apply only through the use of a fiscal sponsor or fiscal agent who has been audited in the last three years and meets all other eligibility criteria.
    • Programs may receive funding for two consecutive years only.

    In addition, the WPN plans to award two small grants of up to $9,000 each. The focus and eligibility of the small grants are the same as listed above, with the exception that a financial compilation will be accepted in lieu of an audit. 

    The deadline to apply is January 31 at 4:00 PM. Contact Liz LaBorde, Chief Grants Officer, at laborde@cfnla.org with questions.

    The Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) is pleased to announce the opportunity for nonprofit organizations in Louisiana to submit an external organization profile (Profile). The LDOE is required, under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), Title IV, Part B, 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC), to provide a list of pre-screened external organizations.

    The term “external organization” is defined by ESSA as: “(A) a nonprofit organization with a record of success in running or working with before and after school (or summer recess) programs and activities; or (B) in the case of a community where there is no such organization, a nonprofit organization in the community that enters into a written agreement or partnership with an organization described in subparagraph (A) to receive mentoring and guidance in running or working with before and after school (or summer recess) programs and activities” (ESSA, section 4201).

    To meet the requirements for the minimum record of success, any organization submitting a Profile must:

    • Operate as a nonprofit in good standing in Louisiana; and
    • Have a minimum of seven years of experience operating or delivering services to out-of-school time programs in Louisiana.

    If your organization meets the record of success requirements, you are eligible to complete and submit the Profile at LDOEExOrgProfile no later than 2:00 p.m. CDT on February 3, 2023. The next opportunity to submit a Profile will occur during the summer of 2025. LDOE will post the updated pre-screened list at https://www.louisianabelieves.com/resources/library/family-support-toolbox-library by March 3, 2023.

    Please note that this solicitation will not result in a contract with LDOE. Nor does the listing represent an endorsement by LDOE. LDOE will verify “good standing” status using the debarred vendor list when the Profile is submitted and periodically thereafter. All eligible pre-screened organizations will remain on the list for two years from the date posted on the LDOE website.

    I am requesting that you widely share this announcement throughout Louisiana. Thank you for your commitment to ensuring Louisiana’s children have access to high quality out-of-school time programming.

    If you have any questions or need further information, please contact Kennedy Victorian at 225-219-0779 or at Kennedy.Victorian@la.gov.

    Hunters for the Hungry Louisiana was founded in 1994. 

    The mission of Hunters for the Hungry Louisiana is to encourage hunters and fishermen to make a difference in the lives of their neighbors by sharing their bounty of wild game and fish in order to combat hunger.

    Top goal for 2023: To encourage deer donations before the hunting season ends. When a hunter drops off their bounty to one of our Partner Processors (50+ across the state), it's NO COST to the hunter to have the deer processed and delivered to a local food bank, shelter, or kitchen. Hunters For The Hungry Louisiana pays the invoice, and we coordinate the delivery with the processor.
