Why donate to the parish endowment fund?

An Endowment Fund is a Fund used for permanent investing. The interest/dividends earned from the investment are then used to help the parish with building projects, faith formation ministries, or general operating costs—while your investment stays intact to earn additional interest/dividends for years to come. A donation designated to the Parish Endowment Fund is a permanent way of benefiting the Parish for years to come.

If an Endowment Fund is something you are open to donating toward, there are five ways for you to contribute. If you have questions or need assistance contact Catholic Community Foundation

Life Insurance or IRA Beneficiary Designations

Donation of Real Estate
