God is the giver of all the graces and blessings we have received.
An endowed gift is an excellent way to make sure that St. Martha continues to thrive well beyond a donor’s lifetime. Endowed gifts help provide long-term stability and sustainability of St. Martha because the endowment is typically structured so the original gift amount (principal) remains intact, while the investment earnings are used to support St. Martha.
Endowments don’t have to be setup for millions of dollars. For instance, a $25,000 endowed gift, at a payout of 4%, will generate $1000 per year for St. Martha and continue forever.
The impact of an endowed gift will impact the ministry of St. Martha for generations to come. St. Martha is blessed to have the Catholic Community Foundation of Southwest Florida as a partner that can help navigate the creation and administration of endowments for our parishioners.
