Endowment Fund and Legacy Society
Established in October 2020, the Resurrection Catholic School Endowment Fund was made possible by a major gift from a donor. The Endowment Fund is managed by the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas (CFNEK) in cooperation with Resurrection’s Board Finance Committee and the Archdiocese's Office of Stewardship and Development.
What is an endowment fund? An endowment fund is an established investment fund with consistent withdrawals from invested income. Resurrection's Endowment allows for semi-annually withdrawal of interest, with the option of using the funds for current needs or reinvesting the amount into the endowment. As donors contribute to the endowment principal, the invested income amount increases, while the principal amount is untouchable.
Why choose to contribute to an endowment fund? A gift to an endowment fund is a gift that keeps on giving for years to come and can easily become a part of your personal legacy and planned giving.
Is there a minimum amount I have to give? No. There is not a minimum amount. Any amount is appreciated and helps make a difference.
Is my contribution tax-deductible? Resurrection is a registered 501(c)(3) and your gift is tax deductible in alignment with IRS guidelines.
How do I contribute? Contributions can be made in-person, online, or by mail to Resurrection Catholic School.

“An endowment is an important part of our long-term commitment to provide a high-quality Catholic education to deserving students, not only for today, but for generations to come. As the endowment grows, so does the impact.”
