Establish a Parish Endowment Fund

The Catholic Community Foundation and the Diocese manage parish endowment funds as a part of its total investment pool, offering the parish advantages of size. 

Starting a parish endowment fund or placing a current endowment fund at the Foundation or with the Diocese can provide an opportunity to plan for and support the future needs of the parish. A parish endowment also gives the parish a means by which it can encourage legacy gifts from parishioners.
