To live healthy lives, children need safe places to live, learn and play. They need access to healthy food, guidance and educational opportunity. Across Louisiana, there are thousands of children without access to the support they need to thrive. Thankfully, there are also thousands of everyday people working to make a difference in the lives of children.
The Angel Award® honors everyday people doing extraordinary good to meet the physical, emotional, creative or spiritual needs of Louisiana’s kids. Since 1995, the Foundation has recognized more than 160 of these outstanding individuals. Each Angel Award also provides much-needed resources — a $20,000 grant for each Angel’s nonprofit charity.
Past honorees, ranging in age from 17 to 93, have been coaches, teachers, clergy, doctors, homemakers, entrepreneurs and others. They’ve served as volunteers, staff and board members of exceptional nonprofits working to benefits kids. What they have in common is an unselfish contribution of time and energy to improve the welfare of Louisiana children.
