2014 Community Impact Award to be $75K

Posted: Updated:

CENLA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - The Board of Directors of the Central Louisiana Community Foundation voted at its January meeting to establish the amount of the 2014 Community Impact Award at $75,000, up from $55,000 in 2013.

Now, the submission deadline has been announced: It is Friday, August 29, 2014 at 12 noon. All proposals must be received by the Foundation by that date and time to be considered.

Only one award is given each year, but it is available to any nonprofit organization or partnership of organizations which submits the best proposal for addressing a critical need in Central Louisiana.

The Community Impact Award is funded by an anonymous donation of $1 million received by the Central Louisiana Community Foundation. Since that time, the fund established by the gift has made awards totaling $355,000 to such diverse purposes as child abuse, art education, AIDS testing, and domestic violence services.

"The award can be made in any field," says Tom Harmeyer, CLCF president and ceo. "But, it is always given to an outstanding organization that demonstrates the capacity to address a critical need in an innovative way."

"This isn't about bolstering a failing organization. And it isn't about funding the same old thing. This award is about addressing an important issue in an innovative and impactful way," he says.
