Why Give to Endowment?

Endowment funds provide a vehicle through which individuals make outright or planned gifts that will have an everlasting impact on the 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 endowment funds.
