The Stuller Family Foundation operates three grant cycles each year.
UPDATE: After little more than 5 days, the Lafayette community came together to match the Stuller Family Foundation’s $30,000 for a grand total of $61,131! Many donors specified that they were giving because of the Stuller Family Foundation Match.
“The Stuller Family Foundation has offered to match all donations up to the next $30,000 made to the Acadiana Regional Coalition on Homelessness and Housing’s Freeze Found, which was initiated to house homeless and nearly homeless people during cold weather.
The Stuller Family Foundation was founded in 1994 as a nonprofit organization serving Lafayette and five adjacent parishes. Since then, it has given away more than $50 million through matching grants, direct grants, partnerships and donations, its website says.
In a statement issued late Saturday, Leigh Rachal, executive director of ARCH, said the match is good for all donations that were made starting Feb. 20 and moving forward for the next $30,000 donated. Money collected will pay retroactively for people affected by last week’s weather.”
Lafayette Sheriff's Office receives nearly $50K donation for search and rescue team
“The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue team received a donation that will allow it to purchase equipment such as kayaks, personal flotation devices and compasses.
The $46,439 donation from the Stuller Family Foundation will help the team that responds to calls for everything from missing children to people who are despondent to water rescues. Sheriff Mark Garber said he was humbled by the donation when it was presented to his office Friday.
“This is a leap forward in the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office being better prepared to protect and serve the public, not just in Lafayette Parish but even with requests outside the parish by other agencies,” he said. “We’re essentially getting better prepared from day one. We’ve come a long way in our ability to respond quickly and more importantly effectively.”

They help make the lives of the kids better through their generous contributions to places like the Boys & Girls Clubs of Acadiana. They embrace the idea of giving it back better than it was given."
