The mission of the Endowment Commission is to grow and manage the endowments for St. Mary’s so that the earnings from endowments eventually provide 20% of the church’s operating funds.
Endowments provide a vehicle for the parishioners to insure the growth of St. Mary’s beyond their immediate contributions. Gift planning is a wise and meaningful use of the personal resources with which God has entrusted us.
Planned giving programs now available at St. Mary’s may be designated for the church’s general fund or directed toward more specific uses, projects or commissions. Each of us needs to consider how we might wish to express our commitment to St. Mary’s.
