ENDOW THE FUTURE

AND RENEW LIVES FOR GENERATIONS TO COME

WHY ENDOWMENT?

The Franciscan Renewal Center's Endowment is a permanent fund, professionally managed and invested. Original gift principal is never spent; rather, a portion of the investment return is used to support the Casa's ministries. The balance is reinvested back into the fund, thereby increasing the value of the endowment over time. In this way, the endowment provides a stable source of revenue for the Casa, while continuing to grow by virtue of sound investment and distribution policies.

The greatest investment you can make in the Casa is the one that never stops giving and growing: A gift to the endowment.

ENDOW WHAT YOU LOVE

In what ways have you seen God's love in action at the Casa? How has your life been enriched? A gift to the endowment is a perfect way to sustain the ministry that has held special meaning in your life and leave a legacy that matters in this sacred community.

If you would like to designate your gift for a particular use, the Casa offers the following options:

  • St. Bonaventure Fund for Spiritual Growth (liturgy and programs)
  • St. Clare Fund for Healing and Transformation (counseling and retreats)
  • St. Francis Fund for Service to Others (outreach and faith in action)
  • St. Joseph Fund for Facilities

Gifts that are not designated for a specific purpose will be placed in the Peace and Good Fund to be used for the greatest need.

GIFTS OF ANY AMOUNT ARE ALWAYS WELCOME IN THE ENDOWMENT.

However, if you wish to create a separate, named endowment fund, you may do so with a minimum gift of $50,000 or more, which can be paid over five years. Individual endowments receive their pro rata share of earnings, and distributions are made in accordance with the donor's wishes and the Casa's spending policy.

Everyone has a place at this table.

There is no gift too small or too large, too soon or too late. Whatever the asset, or the timing of your gift, each and every gift makes an important contribution to the work of the Casa. Everyone who makes a current or a legacy gift to the endowment, regardless of the size of the gift, is recognized as a member of the La Verna Society.

May we welcome you to the La Verna Society?
