Help us reach our goal!

The Greater New Orleans Foundation has helped us create a Rainy Day Fund through the Freeman Challenges grant to establish a cash reserve fund in 2018.  We must raise $10,000 by Dec. 31 to receive the grant. We’re close to meeting our goal!

Named the “Eternity Fund” (from the rainy day quote in A Streetcar Named Desire), the campaign is designed to ensure long-term stability for the 30+-year old festival that celebrates and shares the enormous wealth of literary and cultural traditions that enrich our unique region.  Establishing a cash reserve reflects prudent financial planning and preparation for the future.

When we reach the goal of $10,000, the Freeman Challenges Fund will grant us $5,000. The $15,000 total will go into a separate board-restricted account to provide a necessary safety cushion.

We invite you to take the lead and support the “Eternity Fund.” Your gift will pave the way for a successful campaign.
