Giving

Flexible, creative and donor-focused.

The Foundation offers many gifting options for establishing or adding to a named charitable fund.  It is recognized by the IRS as a public charity, therefore, donors are provided with the maximum tax benefits allowed by law for all gifting options.  Donors can start a fund to satisfy their specific charitable objectives, no matter how big or small.  Donors can add to a fund at any time and in any dollar amount. 
 
Join your community foundation by becoming an Ambassador.  Community Foundation Ambassadors support the Foundation in its mission to impact our community.  Supporting the Foundation is the ultimate way to give. 
   
 

NameIntroduction
Start a Fund
Establishing your own named charitable fund is easy and does not require substantial commitment.  Funds can be established with any amount and can satisfy your specific charitable objectives.
Contribute to a Fund
The Foundation manages over 200 funds.  You can choose to contribute to an already-established fund that mirrors your interests and immediately increase its capacity.  This is a powerful way to memorialize or honor a loved one or celebrate an event while generating a lasting impact on the entity or cause you choose.  
CFA Ambassadors Fund
A gift to the Ambassadors Fund helps the Foundation continue to impact the community and sustain its mission to improve the quality of life in our region.   The Foundation's over $50 million in grants, mostly donor-directed, to Acadiana nonprofits could not be possible without your support. 
 
Stay connected to the pulse of our community's needs by giving a gift, at any level, to this Fund.  Your gift makes you an annual member of the Foundation, and you will receive many benefits.
Create a Legacy

Whatever your stage in life, your financial circumstances, or your charitable goals, the Foundation can help you make a gift that benefits the community you care about, as well as dramatically reducing estate and inheritance taxes for your loved ones.
