Endowment Fund

Our Mission Statement: The St Noel Endowment Fund invests donations to support current parish ministries and to secure the future of the parish community.

The St. Noel Endowment Fund is an investment in the enrichment and well-being of the St. Noel Community. The Fund supports parish ministries that meet the social, youth, religious and community needs of our Parish. Since 2014, the Fund has granted over $274,000 to support these ministries

Bequests can be made to the Fund under direction of a will, in memory of a loved one, or as a direct transfer from an IRA distribution. Donations can also be made online using WeShare and in the form of cash or highly appreciated securities. The Fund is a 501(c)3 corporation. Donations may be tax deductible.
