Corporate Giving: The Powell Group Fund
“We rise by lifting others.” Robert Ingersoll
Out of gratitude for the hard work and productivity of its employees, The Powell Group created The Powell Group Fund as a way to give back to the communities where we live and raise our families.
The purpose of the fund is to support non-profit organizations that serve the greatest opportunities in our local communities, particularly in the arts, community development, education, environment, healthcare, and human services.
Since its origination, The Powell Group Fund has donated more than $1 million to over 100 non-profit organizations in:
- Baton Rouge, Louisiana
- Lake Charles, Louisiana
- Panama City, Florida
- Sioux City, Iowa
The fund supports many exceptional organizations, including:
- Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwest Louisiana
- Literacy Council of Southwest Louisiana, Inc.
- Family and Youth Counseling Agency
- City of LeMars, Iowa
- Opportunities Unlimited
- Camp High Hopes
- General Health Foundation
- Cancer Services of Greater Baton Rouge, Inc.
- Teach for America - South Louisiana
Giving back to our local communities is an important part of our corporate value system, and one we consider an honor to support. For more information about how your organization can apply for a grant from The Powell Group Fund, please visit Baton Rouge Area Foundation's website.
