The Baton Rouge Area Foundation, with $548 million in assets at year-end 2013, 
is the community foundation for the capital region of Louisiana.

The Foundation connects philanthropists with worthwhile nonprofits to meet the needs of communities.
Our donors support arts, health and medical organizations, human service groups, education
programs and environmental programs. Over fifty years, the Foundation has granted
more than $350 milllion. 

We also invest in and manage pivotal projects that change the community. Our projects include
building the Shaw Center for the Arts, creating The Water Institute of the Gulf and master planning the Baton Rouge Lakes.
Our Plan Baton Rouge initiative spearheaded downtown revitalization and is working to revive 
an inner-city neighborhood between LSU and downtown.
