In 2016, we launched a community partnership initiative. The goal was to select an organization that we would officially partner with through volunteering, service or donating funds and resources. After months of strategizing, we deployed our initial application in early 2017.
The application was open to all non-profits in the Greater Baton Rouge area. So long as the organizations fit within one of our four focus areas – education, poverty, race relations and traffic/infrastructure – they were eligible for a partnership with our organization.
Several wonderful organizations – across multiple service areas – applied, and we will be announcing our selection soon.
