The Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation, in conjunction with the Arts & Humanities Council of SWLA, is pleased to offer an informative presentation (lunch will be served!) that will discuss three unique funding opportunities for nonprofits in these tight financial times.

Aimee Smallwood, CEO of the Louisiana Cultural Economy Foundation, will discuss her organization’s Economic Opportunity Fund and Micro-Loan program.

Aimee has also invited the LCEF’s attorney, Zachary L. Wool, to discuss the incredibly unique – and potentially transformative – opportunity that the recent BP settlement provides for nonprofit organizations.

Come munch on some lunch and learn about three unique funding opportunities that could transform your organization. Our time will also serve as a chance to start a dialogue among attendees about creative ways they are dealing with these tight financial times.

Zachary Wool is the LCEF's attorney handling its BP settlement claim. He attended Brown University and NYU School of Law. After three years of working in New York City for an international law firm, he moved back to his home state of Louisiana. In the last few years, he has had the privilege to represent some amazing non-profits, such as the Contemporary Arts Center, LCEF, A Studio in the Woods (and many more that prefer to remain confidential). To date, he's filed claims for eight figures' worth of non-profit funding in the settlement. He has recently been interviewed by NPR and Non-Profit Quarterly about his work and success with nonprofits and the BP settlement.
