About the AH Foundation

The Aucoin Hart Foundation was established by Aucoin Hart Jewelers shortly after hurricane Katrina in response to industry partners looking for immediate ways to help those affected by the storm.

Through charitable events and donations the Aucoin Hart Foundation works to improve the lives of those in need throughout the Greater New Orleans area.

The Aucoin Hart Foundation has identified housing, healthcare and education as the most critical areas needed for the rebuilding process and beyond.

The Aucoin Hart Foundation is a tax exempt, non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3)of the Internal Revenue Code.
