Catholic Foundation Welcomes Five New Named Funds to the Catholic Legacy Fund

December 22, 2021

The Catholic Foundation is honored to welcome five new Named Funds to the Catholic Legacy Fund for Immaculate Conception Church, Most Holy Trinity Catholic School, Retired Priest Appreciation, St. Anthony Seminary, and the Seminarian Education Endowment Fund. The permanent endowed funds will provide support in perpetuity.

The Catholic Foundation uses endowed funds to support the long-term needs of parishes, schools, ministries, and charities.

Donors can create a Named Fund with a gift or pledge of $10,000 or more over a five-year period benefiting the parish, school, ministry or charity of your choice. That's about $5.55 a day or two cups of delicious coffee.

The Named Funds are the Salve Regina Fund for Immaculate Conception, Saint Maria Goretti Fund for Most Holy Trinity Catholic School, Reverend Monsignor David Fierro Fund for Retired Priest Appreciation, San Pedro de Jesús Maldonado Fund for Seminarian Education, and the Santa Clara de Asís Fund for St. Anthony Seminary.

Donors can create a Named Fund with a gift or pledge of $10,000 or more over a five-year period benefiting the parish, school, ministry or charity of your choice. Donors establishing a Named Fund with the Catholic Foundation become members of the Bishop’s Legacy Circle.

The Catholic Foundation is a nonprofit community foundation established in 2001 committed to growing philanthropy in the Diocese of El Paso. In 2001, 122 seed donors contributed $177,000 to create a Catholic Foundation. Today, the Catholic Foundation manages six programs and helps improve the lives of thousands of people and strengthen their faith.

The Catholic Legacy Fund, the Catholic Foundation's endowment program, reached $22 million in 2021.

Your prayer, service, and giving makes this important work possible and fulfilling.
