The mission of the Louisiana National Guard Foundation (LANG) Foundation is to exclusively support the educational programs and the museums of the Louisiana National Guard. The Foundation assists the military, veterans, and their families through various financial initiatives and grants,while also working to uphold the Louisiana National Guard’s mission.
The LANG Foundation manages the commercial operations of the Louisiana Military Department on National Guard posts throughout the state. This includes billeting operations exclusively for military personnel and two museums that are open to the public. The Foundation also collaborates with the film industry on movies, documentaries, television shows, and network programming.
The Foundation’s work upholds the Louisiana National Guard’s mission to preserve and protect life, property, peace, order, and public safety during times of natural disaster. The Louisiana National Guard’s mission is far-reaching, but their local impact is largely felt. The National Guard is often the first on the scene during national disasters—including the hurricanes and floods Louisiana knows all too well. The Louisiana National Guard Foundation works to support this important service for Louisiana communities.
“As evidenced by the recent flooding, never has the National Guard been more important to the state of Louisiana. However, never has the National Guard been under more financial stress. Simply, we have fewer resources to do more work. Putting our underutilized assets and resources to work for us through the creation of the Louisiana National Guard Foundation will position us to be more effective in implementing the mission of the Louisiana National Guard.”
