Welcome to the online home of
The Racine Foundation.
The Racine Foundation is a Louisiana based non-profit dedicated to the growth and prosperity of New Orleans and its people. Racine is the French word for "root" and The Racine Foundation honors that namesake by staying focused on the roots of New Orleans: its people, its culture, and its landscape. By supporting these three major elements of New Orleans' life and commerce, Racine seeks to ensure the prosperity, longevity, and continued growth of our great city.
