Areas of Need
Daughters of Charity Foundation of New Orleans supports the work of Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans as they provide high-quality primary and preventive care to the community. More than 65% of our patient population is uninsured, underinsured, or working poor and pay for services through a sliding scale fee system. Based on the high number of individuals who are uninsured, the Foundation relies on the support of the community to continue to provide compassionate health care to all individuals, regardless of their ability to pay. We are currently asking for support in the following areas:
Daughters' Diabetic Institute
One of our most popular programs, the Daughters' Diabetic Institute, is a diabetes management program designed to combat the diabetes epidemic in New Orleans. The program uses a shared-visits model to give patients the tools, resources, and education needed to effectively manage their diabetes. A gift in support of the Daughters' Diabetic Institute will go a long way in helping our patients live healthier lives.

Seton Medication Fund
DCFNO provides financial support for patients who are unable to afford prescription medications. A significant barrier to good health for individuals living below the poverty line is accessing expensive prescription medications, especially for chronic illnesses. The Seton Medication Fund serves as a lifetime for these patients so they can take control of their health and follow-through with their care plan.

Annual "Keeping Our Promises" Gala
Help DCFNO continue to "Keep Our Promise" of eradicating health disparities in New Orleans and providing high-quality health care to all individuals, regardless of their ability to pay, by supporting this worthwhile event. Our annual Gala is held each spring and is a great opportunity to support our ministry. Contact Elizabeth Teague, President of Development, to learn more about supporting the Gala through sponsorship and silent auction items.

Building Anniversary Fund
The Building Anniversary Fund is Daughters of Charity Foundation of New Orleans’ charitable giving group. It is open to individuals who give $180 on an annual basis. Celebrating Daughters of Charity’s 180 years of commitment to caring for the most poor and vulnerable members of our community, DCFNO established this annual fund in 2012. Together, combined gifts will make a huge impact on the services provided at Daughters of Charity Health Centers, which could include new state-of-the-art equipment and supplies vital to the continuation of our mission to provide quality, compassionate care to our patients, regardless of their ability to pay.
