The Community Foundation of Acadiana was founded some 21 years ago committed to building legacies and improving communities by connecting generous people to the causes they care about. The Foundation is now the third largest community foundation in the state and serves the 8 parish Acadiana area including Evangeline Parish. He reported that the Evangeline Foundation, an affiliate of the C.F.A. was created in 2018 to help create a legacy for parish residents and their families. Each parish affiliate has an affiliate advisory board and is comprised of investors that are residents or natives of that parish. The goal is to raise at least one million dollars in named permanent funds for each parish. That permanent fund is the "engine" that generates discretionary resources to be used at the discretion of the Evangeline Advisory Board. The C.F.A. sponsors the SOLA giving Day.
