A Private Foundation Created by LWCC
The LWCC Foundation partners with and convenes nonprofits across Louisiana as a catalyst for transformational and sustainable change in Louisiana focused on health, wellness, and safety.
Staying True to our Mission and Vision
The LWCC Foundation was created to formalize LWCC’s commitment to our vision of being a catalyst to elevate Louisiana’s position in America.
COVID-19 Response Package
Louisiana Well Again: COVID-19 Response Package is a three-phase, $1.1 million grants and gift package to address Louisiana’s most pressing needs in the face of the pandemic and build future resiliency for the state’s businesses and workers.
$500,000 Grants Program
Phase 3 is a $500,000 grants program focused on addressing some of the long-existing physical wellness vulnerabilities that create an increased risk of severe illness and injury. These pre-existing vulnerabilities have made many Louisiana citizens particularly susceptible to COVID-19. This phase has up to $500,000 in total funding available with the projected median grant of approximately $25,000.
Support for Frontline Healthcare Workers
In an ongoing effort to stem the spread of COVID-19 and help alleviate the personal and economic strain on some of those most affected by the disease, the foundation awarded $500,000 to 24 hospitals and hospital foundations to support frontline healthcare workers.
