Three New Orleans-based non-profits compete for $350,000 Humana grant
 

HUM FinalThree highly-recognized New Orleans area nonprofits--Ochsner Clinic, American Heart Association, and Daughters of Charity Diabetes Prevention Program–are one step closer to winning the multi-year $350,000 Humana Communities Benefit grant from the Humana Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Humana Inc.

 

Since this funding will positively impact the community, Humana will be asking the public which local nonprofit finalist they feel is most deserving of this significant funding via an online vote. Over a 10-day period, anyone – regardless of their location – is encouraged to review a brief video and essay housed on HumanaHCBVote.com to learn about each organization and how they would positively impact their community should they win this significant funding. Voting starts on Tuesday, August 11 and will end on Friday, August 21, with the results accounting for 20 percent of the organization’s total score during the final round of judging, which will occur later this month.
