We strive to make a positive impact not just in our community, but all over the world. Partnering with international organizations is another way we seek to serve.

2020 Impact

The Legacy Report is a visual snapshot of the impact of funds over the past year along with a vision for giving in the coming year. 

We've also put together a short video highlighting some of the giving moments in 2020 and announcing December 6 as Make A Difference Sunday! On that day, we'll take a special offering for the Make a Difference Fund to provide the resources in 2021 for our partner organizations who are serving Acadiana and the world! 100% of the offerings on December 6 will be given away. We hope you'll be part of it!
