Donations can be made to the charity of your choice, right from the DONORSense® website; or, you can use DONORSense® to access comprehensive data on nonprofit organizations so that you can make more knowledgeable decisions about where to give in Acadiana.

"...St. Edward School received a donation directly from our DONORSense® profile...we received another as a personal gift...but I know it was in direct correlation to our presence on DONORSense®...St. Edward School's profile was created as one of the top 100 (on www.DONORSense.org), prior to the (CFA) public launch. To think that in that short time we have already realized a benefit from our effort (on www.DONORSense.org) is huge. DONORSense® allows us to put ourselves out there to donors who might otherwise never know we exist and we are grateful to be a part of CFA in this capacity."
