Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which He has given you.

– Deuteronomy 16:17

How do we fund churches and ministries forever?

Gifts to the Foundation for the Diocese of Helena, Inc. are placed in an endowment fund chosen by the donor. These funds will perpetually serve the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Helena and its mission through the years to come so your children and grandchildren will have the opportunity to walk with Christ as you have in your lifetime.

$36 Million+

Distributed from the Foundation since 2001
to Parishes and Ministries within our diocese

How Endowments Work

The principle of our endowment funds is never touched. Quarterly distributions are made to every endowment fund with a principle balance of at least $5,000 (by July 1 each year). These quarterly distributions are used by the parishes and ministries to supplement their annual budget, pay for special projects or help fund evangelization efforts within their communities.

Here is an example of a gift of $10,000 toward an endowed fund. Over 25 years, it will distribute $13,110.95! Each year the fund grows and provides funding for years!
