Board The MotherShip Today!

The MotherShip Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to encouraging social change and improving the quality of life for Louisiana residents through the promotion of arts, culture and recreation.

MotherShip Foundation was founded in 2005 in response to the cultural aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The organization’s flagship program is the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo. This free, annual festival has allowed MotherShip Foundation to replant oak trees along Bayou St. John that had been lost to hurricanes, launch an anti-litter initiative, and become a valued community partner to organizations throughout New Orleans who rely on the annual Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo to generate exposure and raise funds for their services.

Partner organizations include:
Faubourg St. John Neighborhood Association
Hike for KaTREEna
Mid-City Volleyball Group
Morris Jeff Community School
Parkview Neighborhood Association
Zulu Social Aid & Pleasure Club Foundation
