Catholic Community of Waukesha

St. Mary's Endowment Fund


The St Mary Catholic Church Endowment Fund was established using the bequeathed estates of three generous and thoughtful parishioners.  With these gifts, the trustees and parish council chose to create an endowment fund that would benefit St Mary’s parishioners in perpetuity, providing ongoing financial support for parish programs and services, education, operations, facilities, and other faith activities.


Since 2013 the St Mary’s Endowment Fund has provided financial support in the form of grants for:

  • New phone system for parish and Waukesha Catholic
  • Parish Communication Center in the narthex
  • Stained glass window maintenance
  • Christian Formation:  portable display board for presentations of parish programs
  • Evangelization committee:  welcoming reception desk for narthex
  • Food Pantry renovation:  shelving, work area and desk
  • Maintenance Dept:  walk-behind Floor Scrubber for school and parish
  • Parish Festival equipment:  deep fryer, cotton candy and pretzel warmer
  • St Mary Staff:  black-out shades and blinds in the community room
  • Waukesha Catholic/St Mary Campus:  children’s Bible
  • Waukesha Catholic/St Mary Campus:  tuition scholarships
  • Prayer & Worship Committee:  Liturgical Minister event
