Endowment Annual Report 2021

What is an endowment?

The Endowment is a fund whose principle is never spent. Gifts to the St. Vincent de Paul School Endowment are held in perpetuity and become a permanent investment in Catholic education at St Vincent’s. The contributions are then invested, and the income earned provides a source of funds for generations of students to come.

What is the purpose of the endowment?

The purpose of the endowment is to provide an annual stream of funds available for tuition assistance to parish families.

Where do we stand now?

The endowment was established in 2004, and through the generous contributions from the St. Vincent’s Community, currently has a value of over $960,000.

Where do we need to be?

The value of the endowment must reach $1,000,000 before the income from the invested funds can be used. Once the value of the endowment reaches $1,000,000 the fund could provide approximately $50,000 in tuition assistance on an annual basis, all while keeping the principal value intact.

How can I give?

The simplest way to give to the endowment is a direct gift of money, real estate, stocks, or bonds. Another method is a deferred gift through a will, trust, or life insurance policy. All donations are tax-deductible; please consult your tax or legal advisor about these and other methods to give to the Endowment.

Please consider a contribution to the St Vincent de Paul School Endowment Fund on a monthly or annual basis. Your desire to leave a legacy for future students will give you the knowledge that your gift will provide perpetual support for Catholic education at St. Vincent’s.
