The Catholic Foundation is honored to welcome the Rubio Pinaroc Fund for the Filipino-American Endowment Fund.
The Named Fund was established by Edgardo and Teresa R. Pinaroc, MD, PA to honor their heritage and to leave a family legacy.
This is the third Named Fund established for the Filipino-American Endowment Fund in 2022.
The Filipino-American Endowment Fund was established in 2007 as a legacy to the Filipino heritage in the Diocese of El Paso. Annual contributions support vocations and priests in their retirement. Proceeds from the annual Simbang Gabi, a Filipino Christmas tradition, benefit the Filipino-American Endowment Fund.
The Catholic Legacy Fund is the Catholic Foundation's endowment program. Your permanently endowed fund is forever. When you leave a charitable gift in your will to permanently endow a fund, you are guaranteed that your fund will exist in perpetuity, your fund will make gifts annually, your fund will, on average, grow every year. And, we’ll never spend a penny of the principal.
You can contribute to the Filipino-American Endowment Fund in any amount or create a Named Fund with a gift of $10,000 or more. There is no minimum requirement to contribute to an existing endowed fund. Gifts of any size are welcome, and are vital to the Filipino community's mission.
