The Mission

The Rock & Rouge Foundation aims to provide a science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics path for girls, introducing them to a future of new careers and empowering women locally and abroad.

The Rock & Rouge Festival established The Rock & Rouge Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the empowerment of women’s culture, and granting small scholarships to summer camps for girls pursuing interests in the education of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.)

The Rock & Rouge Foundation promotes the education, empowerment, and enrichment of young girls and women from all backgrounds in Southern Louisiana, specifically the Greater New Orleans Area. The way we accomplish this is two-fold. First, we provide small grants to 5 girls in underserved communities through fundraising events, like The Rock & Rouge Women’s Music & Food Festival, and secondly, through generous contributors like you.  As a Rock & Rouge donor you may specify which department you would like your contribution to be used, either The Festival, The Foundation or The Grants. Our grants send 5 girls to a  STEAM summer camp, or buy a musical instrument or materials needed for a promising girl interested in the visual arts who may not have the opportunity to explore painting due to family budget constraints.      

If you are interested in supporting The Rock & Rouge Foundation please know that your donation is deeply appreciated and tax-deductible! The Rock & Rouge Foundation will supply you or your company with a “gift in kind” donation letter of recognition to your accountant(s).
