Moody, president and CEO of The Moody Company, was first elected to the CFA’s board in 2003 and has served as an officer since 2008. He will chair the nonprofit public charity for two years.

CFA focuses on connecting donors to community needs and opportunities. Founded in 2000, it has assets north of $57 million. Over the past decade, it has received gifts of more than $110 million and made cumulative grants in excess of $58 million in a primary service area that includes Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary and Vermilion parishes. Donors can choose to direct their charitable dollars to any U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, church or school.

One of CFA’s largest undertakings is the transformation of the 100-acre Horse Farm on Johnston Street into a passive public park. Lafayette Consolidated Government purchased the property from UL last year and joined forces with CFA, which announced Feb. 6 that it had created Lafayette Central Park Inc., a nonprofit that will develop the property. LCP will oversee the committees and processes responsible for programming, planning, design, construction, budget and finance, fundraising and public relations. It will eventually operate and manage the park via a longterm lease or cooperative endeavor agreement with LCG.
