Endow Your Annual Gift

You can make your annual support last forever! When you endow your annual gift, you provide a steady, reliable source of funding that helps St. Joe’s meet the mission’s most urgent needs. An endowment is a forever gift – one that does good in our community, each year and every year.

How it works:

St. Joe’s manages your endowment to carefully steward your gift. Each year, a fixed amount (as outlined in the endowment spending policy) is drawn down to spend, with the remainder reinvested. Your endowment will support St. Joe’s mission, to the level of your annual gift, in perpetuity. It is the gift that gives forever.

Your endowment can be named in honor or memory of loved one. It can also be established to support a St. Joe’s program or department; like donors Jeanne and Donald Krause chose to do. Read their story here.

Endowing your annual gift could be one of the most lasting and impactful decisions you make in your lifetime.


Each year, John and Sue give a gift of $1,000 to St. Joe’s. By creating a $25,000 endowment, their annual donation will become a “forever gift”. Each year, a small percentage of the endowment (equaling their annual gift) will be spent by the Foundation. The rest will be reinvested, allowing John and Sue’s $1,000 donation to continue in perpetuity.

Build your endowment over time:

You can establish an endowment with a minimum gift of just $5,000 and a signed endowment agreement. Continue to contribute to your named endowment fund and when it reaches $25,000 it will begin distributions.
