Gayle Benson, the owner of the New Orleans Saints and New Orleans Pelicans, has personally donated $1 million to establish to the Gayle Benson Community Assistance Fund in response to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

"We have been meeting and planning a response since the NBA's announcement to suspend games. Our meaningful discussions have led to what we believe is the most impactful way to best serve the needs of our community as a whole," Benson said in a statement. "The COVID-19 pandemic has had, and will continue to have, an enormous impact on our community and businesses of all sizes. We want to do our part to assist those that have been impacted in our community. We are grateful to the Greater New Orleans Foundation for their efforts in helping us get these funds to those in our community facing hardship due to the residual impact of COVID-19."

The Gayle Benson Community Assistance Fund is also partnering with The Greater New Orleans Foundation (GNOF). GNOF will assist with contributions and distributions.
