It is my privilege to welcome you to The Ivy Foundation, Incorporated as we celebrate 35 years of leadership and service to the metropolitan Baton Rouge community. Through the years, our members have been on the front lines of providing a collective voice, dollars, and womanpower for many of the most complex and systemic issues our city has faced.

We are an organization rich in history, and our service to the community is long and significant. Our more than 200 members are educators, lawyers, health care professionals, mothers, artists, business leaders, philanthropists, and activists who identify needs and develop effective and responsive programs to serve Baton Rouge. We are grateful for the many sponsors, donors, community partners, family, and friends who support The Ivy Foundation, Inc. members in building a better community.

With deep gratitude and appreciation,

Tasha Bergeron Parms
