Endowments provide “forever” gifts to Regina and its students. You may choose to make a gift to one of the three established endowments, or create your own named endowment fund. Either way, these gifts perpetuate “forever” your wishes to benefit students with a Regina Catholic education.
How does it work?
The principal of the endowed gift is invested (and never touched) to protect the “purchasing power” of your gift over time, while providing steadily growing numbers of spendable income (approximately 4% interest paid out annually to Regina).
The Regina Foundation endowments are overseen by our Finance Committee, a subcommittee of the Regina Foundation Board of Directors, and other local financial consultants.
- The Regina General Endowment is critical for the long-term financial health of the Regina education system. Gifts to the Regina General Endowment will be used for the areas of greatest need as determined by the Regina Board of Education and school administrators.
- The Teacher Endowment Fund helps Regina recruit and retain excellent teachers by bridging the gap between the salaries of Regina teachers and their counterparts in the public school system.
- The Tuition Assistance Endowment Fund helps students/families who wish to attend Regina who otherwise could not because of financial constraints.
- Con Fuoco Fund for Excellence in High School Band supports Regina’s band with an annual payout.
- Named endowments for the purpose of scholarships, teacher salaries, tuition assistance, and/or general operating needs require a minimum gift of $20,000 to establish.
If you are interested in creating a named endowment for special projects or programs at Regina or would like to initiate a named fund to benefit teacher salaries, tuition assistance, general operating needs or other determined areas of need, please contact the Foundation office.
