About this Fund

Villa Maria LogoThis fund helps support Villa Maria's mission to instill hope and to inspire their guests to overcome the crisis that brought them to their door. Villa Maria does this with guidance and by setting clear expectations, such as:

  • Remaining drug and alcohol free
  • Staying involved in case management
  • Saving income for rent and furnishing permanent housing
  • Respecting the safety and comfort of other guests
  • Sharing in chores
  • Adherence to the rules

Their services are a blessing for the women that need their help. Villa Maria offers each guest comprehensive planning to help her be independent and self-sufficient. Professional case management services also accompany each woman.

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 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 endowment funds.
