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.
