Request a Grant Writer

Grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 to Greater Baton Rouge, Louisiana nonprofit organizations for programs and projects in the areas of human services, education, healthcare, and prison reentry. Applicants requesting funding in excess of $30,000 must obtain staff approval prior to applying. Grant applications from non-profit organizations with a statewide focus are also accepted. The Foundation believes its highest and best use of grant dollars are for capacity building within non-profits.

The Foundation’s present areas of focus are:
-Human Services: https://www.hawilsonfoundation.org/human-services/
-Healthcare: https://www.hawilsonfoundation.org/healthcare/
-Education: https://www.hawilsonfoundation.org/education/
-Prison Reentry: https://www.hawilsonfoundation.org/prison-reentry/

Of particular interest to the Foundation are the handicapped, both physical and mental, those afflicted with disease, disadvantaged youth, the hungry and the homeless. While care for the less fortunate is important to the Foundation, the Trustees will look particularly favorable on grantees addressing the root cause of the misfortune and where practical or possible assist their targeted population to become self-sufficient productive contributors to the community.

Grant applicants should keep in mind that priority is given to projects that build on strengths and assets of individuals, organizations and institutions and that address the underlying causes of the problems presented rather than treating symptoms. The Foundation is interested in supporting organizations that reflect the diversity of the community they serve in their boards, staff and program focus.

The Foundation also provides the following traditional types of grants:
-Program Grants: Program grants support the direct and operational costs needed to support new, creative or beneficial programs. Allowable costs may include staff salaries and benefits, supplies, equipment, travel, office leases, utilities and training.
-Capital Grants: Capital grants are made for new construction, major renovation and the purchase of permanent assets. These grants may cover costs such as phone systems, computers, and technology upgrading as well as vans or buses.
-Bridge Grants: Bridge grants help mature organizations through times of economic hardship. The organization must show that it can sustain itself after the funding ends.
