Saint Anthony Parish Foundation
The Foundation was established to create a permanent endowment for receipt of permanent gifts to the Parish. All gifts given to the Foundation remain in a permanent fund, with only the interest spent for parish purposes.
The Foundation encourages all parishioners to remember St. Anthony Parish in their wills and bequests Gifts to the Foundation come in many forms (cash, insurance policies, stocks, real estate, etc.). Often gifts are made in memory or in honor of a deceased loved one. Gifts can be made as part of the general endowment or a restricted gift such as the “Elizabeth Vencil Chandler Scholarship Fund” which was established to provide tuition assistance for students from St. Anthony’s attending Dowling Catholic High School.
Parishioners are encouraged to join the St. Anthony Legacy Society, which has two categories of membership; annual or lifetime membership. As a member of the Society, you are acknowledged on a plaque permanently placed at the back of the Church and recognized at an annual Mass. Register today by sending the completed registration form to the Business Office.

The Board of Directors
The Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of the pastor and six members appointed by him to serve three-year, staggered terms. Solicitation of funds and expenditures must be approved by this board and may be allowed for two purposes: operational costs of the school not covered by tuition and needs of the parish physical plant.
