Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund

THE STORY:

As we learned with the Valdez oil spill in Alaska in 1989, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill will have both short- and long-term consequences. The spill will have its most direct effects on the Louisiana coastline and its fragile ecosystems. It will impact the livelihoods of fishermen and their families, as well those who depend on the fishing and tourism industries. The environmental effects will linger for many years.

With the Gulf Coast Oil Spill Fund, the Greater New Orleans Foundation serves as a conduit between the donor community and our nonprofit partners. We fund philanthropic dollars back into the affected communities on both short and long-term bases.

To date, the Fund has granted out over $200,000.00 to help local fishers and other groups affected by the oil spill. To learn more about the grants made so far, check out http://www.gnof.org/programs/gulf-coast-oil-spill-fund/what-we-fund/ .
