Gulf Coast Fund

The Gulf Coast Fund is a collaborative, pooled fund created weeks after Hurricane Katrina and housed at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors. The Fund is committed to supporting work that focuses on environment, social justice, human rights, and rebuilding civil society capacity in the region to ensure that communities are healthy, equitable, and sustainable. At its core is an “Advisory Group” of two dozen leading policy advocates, community activists and grassroots organizers from Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Texas representing a broad swath of constituencies, geographies and issues. These Advisors play a central role in informing the Fund’s grantmaking priorities and policies, and in directing the Fund’s resources.
