St. Peter’s General Fund & Endowment Options

If you are considering either a special gift of a planned gift to St. Peter’s, there are several opportunities you’ll want to consider. The parish appreciates donations that support the ongoing needs of our 90-year-old parish, and we also are grateful for gifts that ensure the sustainability of our academically excellent school and vibrant parish.

Please read the descriptions of our three funds that we’ve established to continue the growth and vitality of St. Peter’s:

Gift Designation:


St. Peter’s General Fund

(An unrestricted gift to be used in the current year)
This fund supports the operating budget of St. Peter’s, including  salaries, building repairs, utilities, and other ongoing expenses. Gifts received for this fund will likely be used during the year the gift was received.

To donate to the General Fund:
1) Please make your check out to “St. Peter’s Catholic Church, Kansas City, Missouri.”
2) If you are transferring or selling appreciated stocks or mutual funds for the General Fund, please also you may find this information helpful.


St. Peter’s Parish Endowment

(An unrestricted gift to be invested in an Endowment for funding the parish in the future)
Established in May 2013, the Parish Endowment is a professionally managed portfolio of funds into which donations will be invested. When the Endowment meets the threshold of $400,000, the interest from the corpus will help fund unrestricted needs of the parish, including capital purchases and repairs, school and youth programs, equipment purchases, and more.

Employee Matching Gifts:

If you are employed and intend to make a gift  to General Fund or one of St. Peter’s Endowments, we ask that you look into your employer’s policy, with regard to “Matching Gifts.” Sometimes those “matches” are monetary, and sometimes companies allow their employees to take paid time off so that they may volunteer in the community. It may take a little extra “time & talent” to secure these benefits, but it could potentially end up doubling your gifts! Here’s a brief list of companies who participate.
