“Holy Family Catholic School, a 115 year old institution, has a long history of receiving excellent support from the Community Foundation of Acadiana. This is a unique setting serving students whose families desire a Catholic educational environment for the formation of their children. Additionally, the outreach initiative witnessed of CFA has been extended to many varied organizations with needs with a desire to facilitate the mission of each qualifying for receiving benefits. What is particularly astute is that they have organized a multifaceted yet simple system of gifting to others with a high degree of integrity for philanthropic donors to share their blessings in the collective communities. We applaud their ingenuity and heartfelt love for the people of Southwest Louisiana. Their motive and standards of operation are exemplary!”

Rogers Griffin, Principal, Holy Family Catholic School
