Our supporters, partners and friends keep the LEH mission alive every day through donations, grants and subscriptions to Louisiana Cultural Vistas magazine. On Tuesday, May 6, the Greater New Orleans Foundation’s GiveNOLA Day offers an extraordinary one-day, online giving event to benefit New Orleans area nonprofits. Every dollar you donate to the LEH through the GiveNOLA portal will be increased by additional “lagniappe” dollars provided by GNOF and their generous GiveNOLA sponsors.
The Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities has named journalist and author Walter Isaacson as its 2014 Humanist of the Year. Isaacson and other recipients will be honored at the Humanities Awards on Saturday, March 29th, 12:30 p.m., at the Audubon Tea Room in New Orleans.
The Humanities Awards are sponsored by IBERIABANK. Tickets to the awards luncheon are $125 per person, with special discounted $90 tickets for young professionals and tables available for sponsorship. Tickets go on sale Feb. 12th.

Welcome to LEH News, a new blog authored by the staff of the Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities. While www.leh.org remains the nexus for information and updates about LEH programs and events, LEH News will offer stories, media, and juicy details about Louisiana’s history and culture. You’ll get to know the folks at our headquarters at Turners’ Hall in New Orleans, plus hear about our partners throughout the state and nation.
Since 1971, the LEH has worked tirelessly to provide the citizens of Louisiana with access to their own shared culture. Today we take another step on that journey. We hope you’ll join us and let us know what you think about the blog, the work of the LEH and this incredible state.
