Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation was created in 1986 and began grantmaking in 2000 to better the lives of the people in the Greater Baton Rouge community. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson believed communities should use their local talents and resources to solve problems; however, communities sometimes need additional support along the way. The Foundation believes when people have their healthcare, education and basic needs met they can be self-sufficient, productive, and successful members of society. The Wilsons knew that the most disadvantaged people in our communities need the most assistance, so the Foundation focuses on the sick and disabled, the indigent, and the formerly incarcerated. Through all its efforts, the Foundation invests in programs that seek to eliminate barriers and address the root causes of problems.
Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation’s mission is to enhance Louisiana’s communities, in particular the Greater Baton Rouge area, by supporting philanthropic initiatives and programs that improve the lives of its residents. The Foundation seeks to support and strengthen organizations working in the areas of human services, healthcare, education and prison reentry that strive to address the underlying causes of social and economic problems.
This statement describes the impact the Foundation will make in order to achieve its mission:
Those most in need have the education, skills, and resources to achieve their full potential.
Huey and Angelina Wilson Foundation is guided by these core values:
- We are committed to Huey and Angelina Wilson’s philanthropic intent to uplift those most in need.
- We are humble and act with integrity.
- We are entrepreneurial and strategic.
- We are collaborative.
