What is an Endowment Fund?  An endowment fund is a perpetual fund.  It is created by charitable donations in the form of cash, stocks, mutual funds, real property, or other personal property given to a Foundation.  

How does an endowment work?  The practice of investing the principal, rather than   spending it, creates a perpetual fund.  Most of an endowments  annual earnings are distributed to the designated benefactors or  programs.    Endowments provide a “forever giving” funding source to Catholic programs and activities.  It’s easy and does not require a monetary gift to set up.  A gift in your will could fund an endowment and leave a lasting legacy  for your family and for your Parish.    Call the Mitchell Foundation Office for more information at (605)999-9127.

Your gift to the Mitchell Foundation for Catholic Education can help  support the spiritual, educational, and  social well being of our Catholic faith community. 
A gift can help assure that our various ministries will be viable well into the future.  In addition, a donation regardless of size, is a beautiful tribute, a way to acknowledge a loved one or commemorate
a special occasion.
