Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our initial goal is to reach the $5 million in endowed funds to our General Fund. This would generate $200,000 in annual funding to support school operations. This would be more than enough to replace the current parish subsidy that St. Peter's parishioners provide in support of the school system.

Over the next several years we are increasing our marketing to our alumni base, especially our out-of-town alumni in the 45+ age demographics with a focus on our planned giving opportunities.

Overall, we've revamped our marketing materials (which had not been updated in over ten years), launched a new website and are working with an external planned giving marketing consultant to generate warm leads within our constituency groups.

Our marketing plan is the first major initiative for the Foundation in several years, so we're excited to see how our constituents and donor base receive it.

During the pandemic, we saw an increase in donations through memorial giving. We also received an estate plan that created a new endowed scholarship.
