“Where your treasure is there also is your heart.”
After a death, we often ask our friends to make gifts to a favorite charity in lieu of flowers. Why not make that favorite charity the parish that has nurtured you and many others through the years? Gifts may be made to a parish endowment fund at the Catholic Foundation in memory of or in honor of someone special. Envelopes are available at parishes or at the Catholic Foundation. Gifts may also be made to honor the birthday of a friend, the ordination anniversary of a priest, or to mark other special occasions in the lives of those you care about.
In addition to giving to an already established fund, families can create their own named endowment funds to honor others.
