The Power of Hope Fund
Providing hope and critical services to impacted communities
Entergy launched the Power of Hope fund just 48 hours after Katrina made landfall. Entergy seeded the fund with an initial $1 million donation. When Hurricane Rita hit just a few weeks later, Entergy donated an additional $600,000. Thousands of generous donors also contributed, bringing the fund to more than $4.2 million. The fund awarded grants to help more than 4,000 individuals and families rebuild their lives. In addition, the fund awarded grants to 67 nonprofits providing critical services to impacted families.
