Dear Brothers & Sisters of our Cursillo Community,
The Cursillo Secretariat would like to inform everyone that after prayerful discernment and discussion, we have entered into an agreement with the Diocese of Southwest Florida, establishing an Endowment Fund for Cursillo of Southwest Florida. This falls within the Diocesan Endowment Management Program of the Diocese.
The purpose of the Endowment Fund is to enable our community to fulfill the mission of the Cursillo movement in our generation and future generations to come. The fund is invested according to the Investment Policy Statement under the direction of an Endowment Fund Board. The Endowment Fund distributions are subject to the Spending Rule as determined annually by the Endowment Fund Board, and no distributions can be made from the principal. All contributions are tax deductible.
How may one support the Endowment Fund?
• Direct cash gifts may be made by check to Cursillo of SWFL. Be sure to write “Endowment Fund” in the memo line. A donation as a birthday or anniversary contribution is a wonderful way to celebrate friends and family.
• Bequests, the most common type of planned gift may be made by including the Cursillo Endowment Fund in your will, by designating a specific dollar amount, or designating a specific percentage of your estate to designating specific assets.
An informational brochure is in the process of being designed that will also have more complex suggestions for planned gifts.
If you would like any additional information, please feel free to reach out to a secretariat member or our treasurer.
Direct cash gifts (check) may be sent to our Treasurer, John Genter, at the address listed below. Please make the checks payable to Cursillo of Southwest Florida and indicate “Endowment Fund” in the memo line.
559 Ladrone Avenue
Tampa, Florida 33606
Blessings to all,
Cursillo of Southwest Florida
Thank you for helping to assure that the mission of the Cursillo movement grows and continues into the future.
The Cursillo Secretariat
