For more than 114 years, Galatoire’s has been committed to the city of New Orleans and supports local causes and cultural programs throughout the community through The Galatoire Foundation, a New Orleans-based non-profit organization.

Created in 2010, the Galatoire Foundation establishes a framework for the restaurant’s numerous community activities and donations through a number of events including the annual Mardi Gras and Christmas table auctions, which have raised more than $2.2 million since their inception in 2006.

The Galatoire Foundation is dedicated to the people of New Orleans and will leave a legacy on a region that has patronized Galatoire’s for generations.
