About Our Foundation

What is the GENF?

Our Foundation is similar to those already established in the Fondren and Belhaven neighborhoods. It is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created for the purpose of promoting, sustaining and improving the greater Eastover neighborhood. The Foundation has a multiple phase plan to improve the appearance and safety of the neighborhood’s entrances and intersections, as well as other areas of the neighborhood. The Foundation pays an Executive Director, a position that is critical to accomplishing our time-intensive projects, facilitating communication and fostering a sense of community within the neighborhood, as well as maintaining relationships with local government and other community organizations. The Foundation uses a company called Home-Land Neighborhood Management to manage accounts receivable, including invoicing and administrative support, and GENF board members meet on a monthly basis.
