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.

We were delighted to visit St. Vincent de Paul Tri Parish Pharmacy and their wonderful volunteers today during the pharmacy’s open house! Did you know that this BCF grantee provides medicine valued at $12,000 each month to the poor in our area? Giving makes it all possible, y’all! Thank you!❤️ #HeartoftheBayou ... See MoreSee Less
