New Orleans, LA (November 8, 2021)
This past weekend two-time GRAMMY Award winner and multi-platinum selling Christian music artist Lauren Daigle celebrated a long-awaited return to her hometown by giving $375,000 to five New Orleans organizations close to her heart. The non-profits, KidSmart, NOCCA, Ellis Marsalis Center, Roots Music, and Young Audiences of Louisiana, all work to provide at-risk youth with resources to succeed through music/art education, food support, and literacy.
“Thanks to everyone’s generosity, through The Price Fund we were able to give back to New Orleans in a way that will truly make an impact,” says Daigle. “All these organizations are doing so much for the community and it’s an honor to be able to help in any way possible. Knowing that the next generation of kids are able to find hope through these programs puts wind in my sails.”
Through its partnerships and outreach The Price Fund, established by Daigle in 2019, is designed to provide care for both children and the elderly as well as those in need. She is committed to investing her time and actively works to heal through various means, including work with at-risk youth. Through donations made via ticket sales alone, Daigle has donated over $1 million to various charities to date and continues to raise funds through merch and streaming.
