(Lafayette, La.) – The Joseph Fund, a scholarship fund at Community Foundation of Acadiana (CFA), awarded its first scholarships to students at St. Ignatius Catholic School and Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School.

The Joseph Fund provides financial support to families seeking Christian education. In its inaugural year, the fund provided scholarships to five students, donating a total of $19,617 to the two schools.

“It means a great deal to the families because all have been life-long Catholic students,” said Amos Batiste, development director at Sts. Leo-Seton Catholic School. “It’s wonderful to get to see them continue receiving a solid Catholic education. We are grateful to The Joseph Fund for this opportunity.”

CFA hopes to grow the fund and provide scholarships to more students in the future. For more information or to make a donation to the fund, visit cfacadiana.org/JosephFund.
