A Legacy of Community Involvement

The Martial F. Billeaud, Sr. Foundation was formed in January 1986 to perpetuate the memory and spirit of the Billeaud family’s most influential patriarch.

Martial F Billeaud Sr

Martial Billeaud immigrated from France to Vermilionville (now Lafayette) in the 1850s and began the long history of the Billeaud family’s commitment to responsible use of land resources and active involvement in the community.

The Martial F. Billeaud, Sr. Foundation provides funds to be used exclusively for charitable, educational and scientific purposes, with grants being provided to deserving organizations within these criteria.

In addition, the Foundation makes donations to civic, religious and educational organizations – and also has three scholarships in place at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Any organization that fits the criteria stated above may apply for funds by filling out our online grant application.
