Legacy Beyond Our Lifetime

Endowment Funds are way for the Parish to maintain long-term funding for ministries within the Parish. Our goal is to invest the money made available through the funds, making the net income from that investment available for spending, but maintaining the principal. This allows your donation to have a much greater impact over a longer period of time than if it were spent immediately.
Saint Frances Cabrini Parish and School has established two endowment funds with the purpose of supporting enduring parishioner legacies for the benefit of Saint Frances Cabrini Parish and School.
Saint Frances Cabrini Education Endowment Fund
Monies may be used for any parish education and Catholic formation programming, including supporting the school, non-school child and youth formation programs, and adult education.
Saint Frances Cabrini Parish Endowment Fund
Monies may be used for any needed parish ministries for facilities maintenance, or improvements.

How are the funds managed?
The funds are managed through the Catholic Community Foundation. The Foundation ( is a separate entity independent of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and is governed by an independent Board of Directors. Professional investment managers make investment decisions in accordance with Foundation guidelines. The Foundation manages the funds with the goal of long-term growth based on socially responsible guidelines.
How are disbursements from the fund determined?
All disbursements from the Endowments are approved by the Pastoral Council upon recommendation from the Finance Council. On an annual basis, grants for ministries will be designated. Distributions shall be of net income so that the principal is preserved.
Can I designate funds for a specific use?
Contributions to the endowments with mandated restrictions will be received and allocated for designated use. All other contributions to the endowments will be viewed as “unrestricted” and their income will be available for whichever ministry grant is determined by the Pastoral Council.
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously… And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. ”
2 Corinthians 9: 6 – 8
“My family and I have been greatly blessed through our relationship with Saint Frances Cabrini Parish. The school, the church and Saint Frances Cabrini’s many ministries have been an integral part of all our lives. We have tried to “give back”, but cannot even start to thank God enough for all the blessings we have received.
We have chosen to support the Saint Frances Cabrini Endowment Funds in our will. Kathy and I feel this is a unique opportunity to continue to support Saint Frances Cabrini and serve Christianity in a lasting way that we could never accomplish during our lifetimes.
The guidelines of the endowment fund ensure this money will be managed and used wisely. It is very satisfying to know we will continue to make a difference even after our life journeys are completed.”
