Ipswich Catholic Community Endowment
Our Parish has always depended upon the generosity and trust of parishioners and families, and their financial contributions. This commitment helps us pay our bills and plan for the future. With seven churches, six schools, four OSHC services, and eighteen social housing units, this support is a testimony to past and present parishioners. This is also a testimony to our parish engaging in the world around us.
About the Fund
Ensuring we have a regular income into the future is one of the greatest challenges facing our Parish. Due to the age of many of our buildings (many over 120 years old), our maintenance and repair costs are a lot higher than most parishes. As a result, these costs pull finances away from our mission.
In response we have established the Ipswich Catholic Community Endowment Fund, which guarantees income to provide these services and ministries. An endowment fund is an investment fund where the capital is preserved, and income is allocated annually to support our parish.
