Our Purpose, Mission and Goal

PURPOSE: LANO is a statewide member organization that advocates for the nonprofit community and strengthens the effectiveness of those committed to improving Louisiana.


MISSION: To be Louisiana’s "go-to” source for:

  • High quality information, tools, resources and member benefits that deepen the impact of Louisiana nonprofits
  • Engaging multi-sector network—both virtual and physical—convening year round to leverage the shared goals and resources of Louisiana’s nonprofits and other stakeholders

  • Written and spoken voice of advocacy for and about Louisiana’s nonprofit sector

GOAL: By every action, to build community through a vibrant Louisiana nonprofit sector valued for its positive impact in a competitive market.


HISTORY: LANO was founded by the Council for a Better Louisiana (CABL) after extensive planning. In 1999, LANO separately incorporated and received its 501(c)(3) designation from the IRS. Our Board of Directors represents all sectors of Louisiana’s nonprofit community and every geographic region. LANO is a proud member of the National Council of Nonprofits (NCN).
