St. Thomas Aquinas School Endowment Fund
In June of 2000, the St. Thomas Aquinas School Endowment Fund was established at The Catholic Foundation of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe for the purpose of providing tuition assistance and other educational needs assistance at the school. The endowment is a powerful means through which stewardship gifts become an investment in the future of St. Thomas Aquinas School.
Gifts to the endowment are tax deductible and are invested in perpetuity by The Catholic Foundation. The endowment provides a predictable source of income for the school to ensure the continuation and growth of Catholic education. Contributions to the St. Thomas Aquinas School Endowment Fund can be made as outright cash gifts or charitable bequests through a will or trust. Contact The Catholic Foundation at (505)872-2901 for more information or visit www.thecatholicfoundation.org.
