Help us reach our goal!
The Festival is proud to announce that the¬†Greater New Orleans Foundation¬†has awarded us the Freeman Challenges grant to establish a cash reserve fund in 2018.¬†¬†We must raise $10,000 by¬†December 31, 2018¬†to benefit from this grant.
Named the ‚ÄúEternity Fund‚ÄĚ (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 totake the lead¬†and support¬†the ‚ÄúEternity Fund.‚ÄĚ¬†Your gift will pave the way for a successful campaign.
