Create a Legacy

Create a Legacy

Gift and estate planning is a flexible and simple way to meet your philanthropic and financial goals.  Charitable trusts, for example, are powerful planned giving tools that can be used to establish a sound legacy for you and your family.

Several types of deferred giving arrangements can be established that help donors who, with generous forethought, want to combine their philanthropic goals with their estate planning.


A donor may create or add to a fund through a bequest.  Because a bequest to the Foundation allows for an unlimited charitable estate tax deduction, and because combined federal and state estate taxes can be significant,
bequests can create tax savings that can be passed on to your heirs.
Through Community Foundation of Acadiana, a bequest creates a permanent legacy that will serve the community for generations to come. The Foundation's administration ensures that donor wishes will continue to be honored.
