ENDOWMENT FUNDS provide an annual source of funding to a Catholic organization of your choice.  This fund is designed to function in perpetuity, making it possible for you to ensure long-term financial support to your chosen cause.  Once established, anyone can make additional contributions to the fund in any dollar amount.

NON-ENDOWED FUNDS are fully expendable, non-permanent funds that offer a convenient way for donors to contribute to a wide variety of charitable causes.  This fund allows you ro make a charitable gift donation, receive full and immediate tax benefits in that calendar your and grant from that fund in the current year or future years without timing or minimum payout restrictions.

DESIGNATED BENEFICIARY FUNDS are created for specific religious, educational or charitable organizations that are near and dear to the heart of the donor.  Grant distributions are made to the designated organization, consistent with the specific intent of the donor.

“Our parish has been such a cornerstone for our life that we knew it was our responsibility to give back.  By establishing an endowment fund for our parish, we know that the fund will continue to bear fruit in perpetuity.”

FIELD OF INTEREST FUNDS are intended to address the needs of an important area of focus for religious, educational or charitable organizations.

K-8 Catholic education is the stepping stone to a life of discipleship.  I established a tuition assistance fund to assist families in providing their children with an education like mine, which has meant so much to me.”

DONOR-ADVISED FUNDS are established by donors who have a range of charitable interests and wish to participate in the future grantmaking process for fund.

“ My family donates to numerous San Diego nonprofits.  Establishing a Donor Advised Fund with the foundation has centralized our giving through one organization and one giving vehicle while having to deal with one tax receipt.”

Looking for Donations for the Upcoming Fiesta Dinner Dance

Here are a few suggestions, based on popular items from past years:

Lottery Scratch Off tickets

Gift cards to restaurants

Movie theater tickets

Gardening tools

BBQ equipment

TV’s or other electronics

Spa packages

Kids baskets
