Endowments Are Forever…

Generations of children have benefited from the gift of a Catholic education at St. Alphonsus Parish School. Unfortunately, it is also true that many families who yearn to send their children here simply can’t afford it.  This is where your generosity and the Endowment Fund can make a difference.

For over 110 years, St. Alphonsus has opened our doors to children and families seeking academic excellence founded in tradition, faith and community.  It is through the commitment of our families making their tuition payments, our generous donors supporting our fundraising efforts, and our community of businesses and grantors that we can continue to offer this education to each family, regardless of their ability to pay

The purpose of the endowment is to strengthen, for years to come, a faith-based education for all students at St. Alphonsus Parish School.  Endowed funds are invested for the long term and provide income that supports core needs as well as specific educational programs.

The St. Alphonsus Parish School Endowment Fund is administered by the Fulcrum Foundation Consolidated Endowments. The interest earned from the principal will help to support student tuition, teacher-enrichment programs and pay for special academic programs and opportunities in perpetuity, advancing St. Alphonsus Parish School’s mission to develop the whole student in a caring environment enriched by the faith of the Church and commitment of families.

Your gift to the endowment will make the gift of a Catholic education accessible to every child.

Planned Giving for the Future…

There are many ways to create an endowment gift. Your contribution in the form of:

can have a lasting impact on generations of children.  Your gifts have a lasting impact on the future because the principal remains intact forever – only 4-5% of earnings are generally used each year.

Leave a perpetual legacy of generosity to the children and community of St. Alphonsus. One of the best ways to make a meaningful endowment gift is through a planned gift.

Planned gifts require some assistance from your professional financial advisor. Unlike cash donations, they typically come from assets in your estate rather than disposable income, and they come to fruition upon your death. The most common planned gift is a bequest in your will or living trust.

Please consult your professional financial advisor or contact Lena Anderson to learn how to support St. Alphonsus Parish School’s mission with a planned gift.
