The Coastal Communities Fund was created after an anonymous
donor established the $20 million fund for Gulf Communities through the
Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors to assist people living in Florida, Alabama,
Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texas who are still struggling in the wake of the
Gulf Coast oil spill. The Greater New Orleans Foundation is responsible
for granting $5 million of the $20 million to nonprofit organizations providing
services to residents within Louisiana’s coastal communities.
