In evaluating requests, the Como Charitable Foundation, Inc. gives special consideration to organizations in Franklin Parish and the surrounding area. The Como Charitable Foundation, Inc. supports a variety of programs in the fields of human services and education. Priority is given to funding capital projects and human resource improvement programs with well-defined objectives and timetables and promising broad public benefits.

Funding will be considered for organizations with strong records of community service. The organization must demonstrate true need for the proposed program, facility and/or improvements, and they must also provide a credible fund-raising plan as well as demonstrate the capacity to maintain the program, project, building, or facility.

Operating support for the organization will be considered a low priority by the Foundation.
