The Heymann Foundation is a thirty five year old 501 C -3 charitable organization. Originally the majority of our donations were given to those individuals or organizations in and around Lafayette parish. As individuals who represent the Heymann Foundation we believe that it is knowledge and education combined with compassion that are the tools needed to positively enrich ones community.
Its current generation has seen Louisiana through some of its toughest hours in modern times including both Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The Heymann Foundation has not only aided in disaster relief but has been prevalent in the rebuilding efforts in Louisiana by supporting such organizations as The United Way, American Red Cross, The Salvation Army , The Dryades YMCA, Habitat for Humanity, Food Net, Good Will and Lazarus House. The Heymann Foundation is a large supporter both locally and nationally to The Alzheimer's Association. We have donated to the American Jewish World Congress to help those affected by the devastating tsunami in 2006 and Haitian earthquake relief. Our commitment to diversification is also evident as we support several local and statewide art, music and animal charities.
The Heymann Foundation is committed to the rebuilding of the state of Louisiana and the City of New Orleans and our goal overall is to improve the lives of its residents who are most in need. We hope to continue to make Louisiana, the United States and the world a better place for everyone. All donations are tax deductible.
