About this Fund

The Centro Mujeres de la Esperanza Fund was established to provide support for women in our community in perpetuity. Clients of Centro Mujeres de la Esperanza are nearly all Hispanic and the majority live in conditions of poverty. The organization serves strong women affected by language barriers and scarcity of economic and professional opportunities. In response to the needs of their target population, for decades Centro Mujeres de la Esperanza has provided programs in key areas—education, health, finances, spirituality, family and community development, and counseling. The organization supports the growth of their clients' self-confidence, knowledge, and skills through an array of classes, including computers, the citizenship exam, English, cumbia aerobics, tai chi, knitting and more. Classes are made possible by a small army of committed, qualified volunteer instructors. An endowed fund of $100,000 provides an annual gift of $4,000 for the organization, a 4% distribution of the fund's value. Centro Mujeres de la Esperanza will receive their first distribution in 2021. Donations to this fund will ensure that Centro Mujeres de la Esperanza can continue to pursue their vision.

Centro Mujeres de la Esperanza is located in the Centro San Juan Diego building that houses the diocesan Office of Religious Formation at 901 W. Main Drive in Sunset Heights.

Why Give to Endowment?

Endowed funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the ministry/parish/school. In time the income generated by the gift will far exceed the original donation.

As a result, endowed funds provide a perpetual, supplemental source of income for such things as the enhancement of programs and ministries, facilities maintenance, scholarships and seminary assistance, priest retirement, etc. Learn more about endowed funds.
