Community Enhancement Award

As a long-standing member of the Baton Rouge community and one of the largest employers in the Baton Rouge area, Baton Rouge General recognizes the positive impact of non-profit organizations working to improve our community. That’s why we developed the Community Enhancement Award (CEA), a grant program that allows us to select and support large projects with significant, multi-year grants and allows us to focus on complex initiatives that align with our mission to restore and maintain health, one person at a time.

The CEA is intended for non-profit organizations seeking financial support to implement transformative and sustainable projects that benefit Baton Rouge area residents in one of the areas of focus below. Depending on the project needs, BRG will commit up to $50,000 for up to two years.
