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.”
Moncus Park: More elements of Phase 2 in the works, new opening date this year
“Phase 2 also includes building a restroom facility and an amphitheater, sponsored by IBERIABANK, and a Veterans Memorial, sponsored by the Stuller Family Foundation, the Pinhook Foundation, the James Parkerson Roy Family Fund, the Schilling Family Foundation & Schilling Distributing Company, among many other donors who have sponsored brick pavers, called Mark the Park and available for anyone who would like to have a Veteran remembrance.
Since Lafayette Central Park Inc., the nonprofit company overseeing the creation of Moncus Park was, founded in 2014 it has raised over $20 million. The front half of Moncus Park will include a 4-acre lake, an amphitheater, a dog park, and a Veterans memorial.
In the back 25 acres are where the sounds of nature can be heard — birds chirping, water trickling in the ravine, and frogs croaking from the shallows. The L-shaped forest will be left relatively untouched..
The park has been a work in process since 2005 when UL students found out the farm was under threat of commercial development. Brooks and her peers took action to preserve the space, with Brooks continuing the movement for almost two decades now.
