The Monsignor Richard A. Behl Endowment Fund

The Monsignor Richard A. Behl Endowment Fund is a permanent endowment established in 2008 to provide interest and dividends to enhance the school’s curriculum.  The Endowment Fund will enable us to continue to offer a rigorous Catholic education to our current and future students who are counting on St. Francis for their start in school and their faith formation.

Any contribution is greatly appreciated and is fully tax-deductible.  Checks should be made payable to The Monsignor Behl Endowment Fund.  We thank you for your generosity and support.

What to Give
Of the many ways to give to the Endowment Fund, most donors choose cash and cash equivalents, whether as annual gifts, a one-time gift, or a gift pledged over a period of years.

Tax Advantages
Any gift entitles you to the most generous federal income tax charitable deduction up to 50 percent of adjusted gross income. If all deductible gifts to the Fund in that year exceed the 50-percent limit, the excess amount may be carried over as a deduction for up to five years.
