what is an endowment?
A gift to an endowment doesn't work quite the same as a normal gift. An endowment fund is an investment into the future. Money is invested (called the "principal"), which then creates interest. Then an organization can receive a portion of the investment each year, while the remainder is reinvested to continue to build up the fund. Having an endowment means that an organization has a steady stream of support for years to come, which in our case, means we've got the funds to build a pro-life army in the Mitten.
Protect Life Michigan is proud to partner with the Catholic Foundation of Michigan to manage our endowment fund. Donors give to the fund through the Catholic Foundation and they, in turn, ensure it is only invested in life-affirming means.
Protect Life Michigan is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Donations to our organization are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. While we welcome recommended designations, this contribution is made with the understanding that the donee organization has complete control over the use of the donated funds.
Staff members' names should not appear on your check or online donation, not even in the comments or on the memo line.
Protect Life Michigan is an independent organization, not affiliated with any other local, statewide, or national organization. That means 100% of your donation stays in Michigan and is used to serve students here in the mitten.
