We learned after Hurricane Katrina that a critical need for small businesses was a quick infusion of cash to reopen as quickly as possible. NOLA Media Group has pledged $100,000 to that cause. We hope others will join us.

NOLA Media Group, in partnership with Foundation for Louisiana, has created the One Louisiana Fund to provide disaster relief for small businesses in the Baton Rouge area.

We learned after Hurricane Katrina that a critical need for small businesses was a quick infusion of cash to reopen as quickly as possible. NOLA Media Group has pledged $100,000 to that cause. We hope others will join us.

Foundation for Louisiana, which has invested more than $40 million in disaster relief and recovery, will work with organizations in the affected region, including the newly created Louisiana Small Business Rebirth Fund in Baton Rouge, to get money into the hands of worthy small businesses as quickly as possible.

The Small Business Rebirth Fund in Baton Rouge also will work with area businesses to distribute the donations quickly.

Our neighbors need support. How will we respond?
