About Community Shares of Louisiana

Community Shares of Louisiana (CSL) is locally controlled and operated. The board of directors consists of one representative from each member agency, each of which directly serves the needs of the people of Louisiana. All member organizations have501(c)(3) tax-exempt status, and meet strict standards for fiscal and administrative accountability. Our member groups are bound together by a grassroots philosophy and by the goal of achieving greater economic and social justice for Louisianians.

Begun in 1996, we will be involved in our first workplace giving campaign at Tulane University this fall.   We have received technical assistance and support from the National Committee for Responsible Philanthropy and belong to the National Alliance for Choice in Giving

Start-up funding for CSL has been provided for 1999 by the Needmor Fund in Boulder, Colorado.
