The mission of the Louisiana National Guard Foundation (LANG) Foundation is to exclusively support the educational programs and 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 its 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.

“The Louisiana National Guard is focused on building combat readiness, and the Louisiana National Guard Foundation contributes to our ability in meeting our personnel and training requirements.


The Foundation does essential work to improve the

livelihood of our Guardsmen and enhancing the experiences at our National Guard installations and readiness centers. The MWR facilities, gym equipment, and housing and billeting services are just a few areas where Guardsmen prosper from the resources of the Foundation.”
