Endowment Funds

St. John the Baptist Endowment Funds

Endowment funds sustain our church, school, and cemetery in perpetuity.  St. John the Baptist currently partners with Catholic Community Foundation of Minnesota for these five endowment funds:

Pastoral Care, created in memory of Julie Hammer

Supports the many outreach ministries to the elderly, homebound, and sick, and members of our parish community in time of need.

General Operations

Provides support to meet the needs of the parish including the upkeep and repair of our physical plant, the development of our staff, and enabling the parish to respond to emergencies and special opportunities.


When repairing is not enough, the Capital Endowment steps in to replace and provide, taking the general maintenance of our parish facilities to a new level.


Provides for the needs associated with the maintenance of and improvements to our cemetery, as well as help planning funerals, offering grief support for the bereaved, and providing respectful care for the deceased.

Tuition Assistance

Provides financial aid for tuition assistance for St. John the Baptist School families in need.
