Foundation Facts

The Foundation Endowment reached $1,274,019 in 2022 enabling a $68,000 distribution in July 2023 to the parish and school!

The purpose of the foundation is to receive and invest funds so as to be a source of financial support to our parish and school. The Foundation was formed on Dec 11, 1989 as a corporation separate from the parish. The Our Lady of Victory Foundation is an approved tax exempt 501(c)(3) corporation.

The Foundation distributes funds following the guidelines set forth in the Uniform Prudent Management of Institutional Funds Act. The distributions began in 1998 when the initial threshold of total value reached $100,000 and have continued each year thereafter. Click for Value and Disbursement information.
