LANO Member the Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF) Participates in National Effort to Highlight Collaboration and Innovation in Philanthropy
During the week of November 12-18, 2011, the Greater New Orleans Foundation will join more than 700 community foundations across America celebrating Community Foundation Week.
For more than 20 years, the effort has raised awareness about the increasingly important role of these philanthropic organizations in fostering local collaboration and innovation to address civic and economic challenges.
"Community foundations impact lives, solve problems, and improve futures,” said Albert Ruesga, president & CEO of the Greater New Orleans Foundation. "In a down economy, with limited resources and a growing need for services to help families in need, we are more determined than ever to bring our community partners together to find innovative and effective solutions to some of our most challenging social problems.”
