Help us reach our goal!
The Greater New Orleans FoundationÂ has helped us create a Rainy Day Fund through the Freeman Challenges grant to establish a cash reserve fund in 2018.Â Â We must raise $10,000 byÂ Dec. 31 to receive the grant. We’re close to meeting our goal!
Named the â€śEternity Fundâ€ť (from the rainy day quote inÂ A Streetcar Named Desire), the campaign is designed to ensure long-term stability for the 30+-year old festival thatÂ celebrates and shares the enormous wealth of literary and cultural traditions that enrich our unique region.Â 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 leadÂ and supportÂ the â€śEternity Fund.â€ťÂ Your gift will pave the way for a successful campaign.
