Our Future is Your Future

We want our village to grow into a vital, active and interesting place within Baton Rouge– a place with heart and character that nurtures friendships, family, gathering and good times through the generations.

To help this happen, we created the Pointe-Marie Institute, a non-profit foundation dedicated to creating and nurturing a sense of community for our village.

We believe the Institute is so important that we created it BEFORE we created the village itself, to establish a firm foundation of programming, events, festivals and gatherings – a human infrastructure – that will:

  • Support, Foster and Underwrite the Arts and Culture at Pointe-Marie 

  • Promote Community Enhancements

  • Create Greater Baton Rouge Area Arts and Cultural Events

Our Mission

The Institute will regularly sponsor diverse events, programs and activities within the village that educate and entertain while providing occasions for gathering among residents, charitable organizations, guests and visitors.

Examples of Institute programming will include:

  • Concerts and good music

  • Celebrating local and regional traditions

  • Fitness, Health and Wellness

  • Food, Slow Food and locally sourced cooking

  • Outdoor “walk-in“ movies

  • LSU Football Viewing parties 

  • Sports gatherings (SEC Championship, NFL playoffs, Super Bowl, College World Series,   Final 4, NBA Finals, World Series, etc.)

  • Programs addressing native flora and fauna

  • Festivals celebrating the change of seasons

  • Arts and humanities programs

  • Visiting authors for readings 

  • Sports figures and other VIP sports demonstrations and presentations

  • Helping disadvantaged children interact with the village

  • Retreats and other quiet contemplative and artistic pursuits

  • Opportunities for residents to share village programs and events with family and extended family

  • Interrelated activities and events in tandem with local, regional and national non-profits organizations and communities
