Wisner Grant Donation
The Edward Wisner Donation was created from the estate of Edward Wisner to the City of New Orleans as a 100 year charitable trust in 1914. According to the original donation, the Wisner Donation must support local needs in the areas of beautification, education, recreation or human services.
Today, the Wisner Donation offers public and non-profit organizations an opportunity to submit a funding request through a competitive selection process.
Proposals should include information about the organization, details on specific programs grants would fund, a requested dollar amount, and an explanation of how the project would be benefit the public.
Each year there are two review periods: the Spring Proposal Review (February 15 – 28) and the Fall Proposal Review (August 15 – 31). Applications are due by COB on the business day prior to the beginning of each review period.
