About
The Foundation


Why we are here

Our region is blessed with fundamental qualities that are easy to take for granted. From good schools and safe streets to nature’s abundance in green trees and fresh water, we enjoy a quality of life that many communities could merely dream of. 

WHAT DRIVES US

1. Serve donors to build the assets that drive initiatives and solutions;

 2. Engage community leaders to develop appropriate responses to
​      emerging opportunities and challenges; and

3. Evaluate our work and share the results with our stakeholders. 


​MISSION

The Northshore Community Foundation unites human and financial
​resources to enhance the quality of life in the Northshore region.


HISTORY

We are young. Started in January of 2007 by local leaders who saw a need to elevate the conversation of philanthropy in our region, we are already having a dramatic impact. In our short history, our assets have grown to $16,493,114 and we have granted almost $7 million to nonprofit organizations, helping our donors’ dollars to make lives better across the Northshore.


AREA SERVED

The NCF serves the entire Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain,
​including St. Helena, Tangipahoa, Washington and St. Tammany parishes.
