This past weekend two-time GRAMMY© Award winner and multi-platinum selling recording 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 can 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 actively works to heal through various means, including working 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.
 
Recipients of the Price Fund include KidSmart, which partners with K-8 public schools to embed professional teaching artists in classrooms. They also provide afterschool and community-based programs which aim to increase art education throughout New Orleans. The donation made will aid in the expansion of their Literacy NOLA Program which works to improve student literacy, social/emotional skills, and teacher/teaching artist efficacy and engagement.
