What is an Endowment?

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 for more information at (605) 999-9127.


Your gift to the Mitchell Catholic Foundation will support the spiritual, educational, and social well being of our Catholic faith community.


Your gift will 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.

Their goodness has encouraged us; their gifts have enhanced our efforts to recreate your merciful presence in our world. in gratitude, we ask you to reward them with signs of your generous love and when their lives on earth are over, to welcome them to your heavenly banquet. Amen.
