Who We Are


Bayou Community Foundation is the only charitable foundation solely focused on building and sustaining the communities of Lafourche Parish, Terrebonne Parish, and Grand Isle.

“2020 has been an incredibly challenging year with a global pandemic, economic crisis, and the most active hurricane season on record. South Louisiana has experienced significant impacts from all three events, but these communities have an incredible resilient spirit and it is inspiring to see people on the ground supporting each other. We hope that our contribution and partnership with the Bayou Community Foundation will help enable the important work of local organizations for our neighbors.” - Selby Bush, BHP Corporate Affairs
