About the Foundation for Entertainment Development & Education


Funding was given to seven (7) different arts organizations by the Foundation for Entertainment, Development and Education. FEDE is a 501 C-­‐3 created in 1990 to fund projects and programs that acknowledge the profound importance of the performing arts to the culture and economy of the New Orleans area. The Foundation is supported by proceeds from four annual events: The Tribute to the Classical Arts, The Big Easy Theater Awards, The Big Easy Music Awards, and The Reds, Whites and the Blues, a food and wine event fundraiser.

Applicants were chosen for several reasons. FEDE sought to award a variety of disciplines within the performing arts. The board also looked at how many people would benefit from each proposal, giving more credence to projects involving hands-­‐on-­‐training for participants.
