Your commitment to causes you care about can be continued beyond your lifetime. This is the work we're called to at the Catholic Community Foundation. With a Family Endowment Fund, you can make a difference today, tomorrow and forever. You can be assured that we prudently manage your gifts, making sure they are distributed when and where you choose, and ensure your charitable intentions are upheld forever.
Here's how it works:
Let's say you set up the Jones Family Donor Advised Fund. With this fund, the Foundation will manage on-going distributions to your favored charities. Then, after you pass away, the fund balance can be converted to create the Jones Family Endowment Fund. Likewise, after providing you with a lifetime income through a Jones Family Remainder Trust or Gift Annuity, the charitable remainders of these arrangements can also be added to the Jones Family Endowment Fund - a true legacy.
Once in place, your Family Endowment Fund will produce earnings - a portion of which will be sent out each year to support the charities you've identified - for example to fund: religious education in your parish, tuition assistance, vocations, pro-life causes, etc. You decide.
Your endowment principal will be protected forever - so gifts will be distributed in your name for generations to come. And, once established, your children, grandchildren or other designated successors can add to the endowment to honor your legacy.
