Friends of the Cathedral Endowment
In September of 2004, the Friends of the Cathedral Endowment was established at The Catholic Foundation of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for the purpose of providing funds for the maintenance of the Cathedral of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe. The endowment is a powerful means through which stewardship gifts become an investment in the future of the Cathedral of St. Francis of Assisi.
Gifts to the endowment are tax deductible and are invested in perpetuity by The Catholic Foundation. The endowment provides a predictable source of income for the Friends of the Cathedral to ensure that funds are available for the future preservation and maintenance of the Cathedral. Contributions to the Friends of the Cathedral Endowment can be made by anyone, at any time – as outright cash gifts, or charitable bequests through a will or trust. Contact The Catholic Foundation at 505.872.2901 for more information or visit http://www.thecatholicfoundation.org/.
