HORNETS COMMUNITY ASSIST GRANT

The New Orleans Hornets Community Assist Grant is the Hornets commitment to giving back and acknowledgement of organizations doing outstanding work to uplift our community. We will award $35,000 to three local non-profit organizations at our annual Top Hats and High Tops Gala on April 14, 2012. The grants will be awarded to organizations who demonstrate that they are enriching communities in the Gulf South through our key areas of Education, Health and Wellness and Planet Rebound and are being an inspiration to others to positively impact our communities.

Congratulations to all organizations that submitted an application for the Community Assist Grant this season! We truly value the work you are doing and for being involved to make a difference in our community. While all organizations exhibited exceptional work, we would like to congratulate the final three award recipients for their outstanding work to uplift our community.

Thanks to all organizations that submitted an application for the Community Assist Grant this year, there were numerous organizations doing outstanding work. Although we could not choose every organization, we encourage you to apply again next year as all applicants were committed to making a difference in our community. Due to an overwhelming response of strong applications, we will not provide feedback for individual organization applications. Again, all organizations exhibited great work and we commend you for your efforts!
