The purpose of the Joan of Arc Project is to honor and celebrate Joan of Arc’s life in unique artistic and educational ways, including the production of the annual Joan of Arc Parade and Salon de Jeanne d’Arc. The Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc seeks to keep Joan’s story and spirit alive by hosting events, workshops, and presentations that illuminate Joan’s heroism and timelessness, while connecting her to the French heritage and pride of New Orleans. “The Maid of Orleans” inspires citizens of New Orleans and people around the world; we welcome people of all faiths and backgrounds to join in our joyous, New Orleans-style revelry.
The Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc is classed as a secular IRS 501c7 nonprofit organization (social club, not tax deductible). However, consistent with suggested operating guidelines for a 501c3 charitable organization, we spend at least 60 percent of our budget directly on the public parade and educational events, with the remainder going to operating expenses and members-only events. The Krewe de Jeanne d’Arc has no administrative employees and does not pay leaders.
One additional funding need we are contemplating for the upcoming year is financing for krewe leaders to travel to our new sister city, Orléans, France, to participate in their May Fête de Jeanne d’Arc, as they participated in our 2018 parade. This project will be handled separately from krewe funding; contact Captain Amy for more information.
