MAKING A LASTING GIFT
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.
These funds are a component of the Saint Frances Cabrini Planned Giving Strategy. There are many ways for parishioners to contribute:
Direct bequests in wills or living trusts
Charitable remainder trusts
Designation of Saint Frances Cabrini Parish as a beneficiary under life insurance plans, annuities, 401k’s or IRA’s
Direct gifts of cash
Direct gifts of appreciated property
Donor Advised Gifts
For more information please contact Rick Doll, Director of Administrative Services at 262-338-2366.
How are the funds managed?
The funds are managed through the Catholic Community Foundation. The Foundation (www.legaciesoffaith.org) 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.
