It was with great anticipation and excitement in October of 2016 we launched our endowment capital campaign with its theme Honoring Our Past, Investing In Our Future. To date $3,800,000 in pledges have been made and $2,000,000 of these pledges has been added to the endowment. Our endowment now stands at $4,000,000.
As the remainder of the pledges flow into the endowment the proceeds earned will provide increasing revenues to initiate the goals of the campaign to increase teacher salaries, provide new funding for necessary capital replacements on our beautiful campus, to enhance our parish pastoral ministry, and to lay the groundwork for a development director.
Over 40% of our parishioners have participated in the campaign. If you have not yet decided on your gift to the campaign, please prayerfully consider making your gift at this time. Our hope is that as many parishioners as possible support this effort. Every gift truly makes a difference.
The solicitation portion of the endowment campaign has ended and 2018 marks the beginning of the on-going campaign. This includes efforts to further enhance our endowment through Planned Giving of major gifts, trusts, and estates to St. Margaret Mary Parish and School.
